Hurray, no Armageddon!!! Puppy Blogging
We got the lumber deal! Armageddon didn't happen so here's the lovely and amazing Brigit.
Last week Tearfree sent her daughter out to buy doggie supplies but she neglected to provide detailed instructions, instead just telling her to take the money on the dining room table and buy a collar, lead and food bowls.
Tearfree's 11-year-old daughter bought a $13 collar, an $18 lead and an $18 set of feeding bowls. When Tearfree received this news over the phone she freaked out. "My Gawd, what did you get?" she said, trying to keep from totally losing it.
"Fake Louis Vuitton," replied her daughter, who is a total brand name slut.
Finally yesterday, after accepting she would never get around to returning this overpriced merchandise and that she must take responsibility for not providing pricing instructions, Tearfree decided it was time to move on. She even used the leash in question without bitterness and remorse. But then today, when she and her daughter took Brigit for her 8-week vaccines, she was reminded of the situation once again.
"Wow, a Louis Vuitton leash," said the Vet's assistant.
"It's fake and plastic," shot back Tearfree, who is not into brand names and looks down upon those who worship them.
Oh," said the vet's assistant in a manner that made it unclear whether she was relieved or disappointed.
"Why did you have to tell her it was fake?" asked Tearfree's daughter after the vet's assistant left the room.
"Because that's the difference between us," answered Tearfree. " I'd be embarrassed to own a Louis Vuitton lead and you're embarrassed to own a fake."
Here's the lead for you to bid on over at Ebay if you're so inclined. And the real thing sells for around $300 Canadian just in case you're considering it.
