a lady and her dog

ok kids 'n kidders... I have to call on the collective hive wisdom of the EF to possibly give me a diagnosis...
.
I was driving to work this morning, with mrs G., and passed a nice looking lady of a certain vintage ( not too old, no visible rust, may have had a little body work ) walking her little chocolate lab.

and as I slowed down I took an extra glance over and thought.. "oh my what a cute puppy"

have I gotten THAT old????????????????????

No, you are old enough that self preservation is instinct and your verbal thoughts become safe just in case. "Did I just say that?!| Whew, close one!

Re: a lady and her dog

Good job she wasn't walking her cat - could have lead to all sorts of hilarity... or not

Oh, and yes.

EDIT: although you haven't told us what she's like compared to Mrs G. If inferior - of course - then naturally you would gravitate towards her dog... or something like that... (I'm try to help here...)

Re: a lady and her dog

I have to admit, it took me a while to grasp what the issue is...But that maybe because i love dogs too much, especially the chocolate colored ones. Whenever me and my husband (and daughter) see one or more we both squeal "puppiiiieeee" in the highest pitch we can, no matter how big the dog is.

I was driving to work this morning, with mrs G., and passed a nice looking lady of a certain voluptuousness ( not too small, nice visible bust, may have had a little body work ) walking her little chocolate lab.

and as I slowed down I took an extra glance over and thought.. "oh my what huge puppies"

have I gotten THAT old, that all I do is drool ????????????????????
