I had an unexpected reaction to someones comments on Facebook this week and I don’t know why it got too me so much. Breaking it down, my state has this incredible public Facebook page (well two at least) where people from all over the state can make public posts about if they have pets go missing. There’s one page that’s for any pet and another specific for dogs, cats, etc.
Now I am sure if you are a pet owner, you know around New Years it can be dangerous for pets when it comes to fireworks. They can scare them and make them so scare they will just go for it and run. These two pages are just FULL of missing pets around this time every year, some end up being happy stories, some not so much.
There was one story I was reading and my heart broke. Now I must say apart from the owners saying that the dogs had dug under the fence, there was no other mention about things like, if the owners were even home, if the dog had ever suffered from fear of fireworks before. The only two things for certain was that the dog dug under the fence, and the fireworks would have gone off illegally. There was this one poster though that made a comment about how selfish the owners were for leaving the dog outside.
And it made me SO mad! I couldn’t help myself, I tore into this person, as well with others.
What is it with me and animals? I cannot help myself. I also could not believe this person couldn’t see how inappropriate their comments were. They were just so unnecessary.
I think that I found my weakness!
Sometimes I think it’s just better for all concerned if everybody stayed off of Facebook…Too many people having too many knee-jerk reactions to situations they don’t actually know anything about. Too many people condemning other for not doing what they preach the others “beneath” them should do.

As I was having a shower I had a random thought (as you always do in the shower). My left leg for the past year or so will give me sudden twinges of pain, and it will last for a couple of days after I get it. It happened after last year…I don’t know how many of you watch “Sex and the City” there was episode called “The Catch”. If you know that episode you will understand completely what I mean when I say that someone from my recent past of last year is a “Jack Rabbit”.
After I stopped “copulating” with this person, within a week I had my issues regarding my leg. The other problem was my immune system was down and I had developed a cold, and when I gave my first cough…My lordy! The pain that shoot through my leg, my dog run away from me because I swore so loudly,lol.
The thought that I had while I was in the shower was actually about my best friend who has recently broken up with someone, and although she knew that I did not particularly like him (for good reason) I have gone either “I told you so” However she keeps doing, as sometimes happens, meeting up with him and I have this deep dark feeling that they will eventually get back together. As I was in the shower I had this thought “If only there was some sort of physical reaction we have that gives us pain, to remind us…”This person will cause you pain“…Of course, just as I was thinking I had my own pain shot through my leg.
Instead of crying out in pain or annoyance though, like I normally would have, I had a little grin to myself. I have my own little reminder of the person that gave me that pain. In that moment, I just had a slight happy satisifcation to myself. That pain will ALWAYS remind me…
For those who do not know what a “Jack Rabbit” is…Here’s a clue…(Don’t watch video unless you are 18 years of age and over).
