The Vicious Doberman in the Parked Car

This evening I was out with a friend, running around doing errands, shopping for a birthday. We stopped off to get something to eat. I got a huge pizza and couldn't eat all of it. She got some ice cream and ate the rest of my pizza. Anyway, we were sitting outside eating our goodies when I notice a Doberman sticking its head out of a parked car. I did not see the owner get out. I really, really wanted to pet that Doberman badly. So, I got up, walked over to the car, saw that the windows were down far enough for the Doberman to stick its head all the way out. As soon as it saw me coming... out popped her head to get petted. No barking. No noise of any kind. Just sweet looks of loving the attention I was giving her. Then I saw a man approaching the car (the owner!) "What do you think, she's a pretty vicious attack Doberman isn't she?" he asked. We discussed the stories of our respective dogs. His was a rescue who had had heartworm when she was little. She had a lot of therapy. "But she never made any fuss. It didn't bother her at all," he told me. I told him about how my Ellie had come from a disreputable breeder here in Boulder. It became obvious his dog was hungry for dinner, so we said goodbye and he left.

Meanwhile, in the car parked two spaces over there were two fuzzy mutts that looked like the must have had some Australian shepherd in them. As soon as I got within two feet of their car, they let me know I wasn't welcome. Bark, bark, growl, bare teeth!

Isn't it strange how we associate the Doberman with a vicious attack dog and the shepherd mutts with gentle family dogs?

PS. Later there was a Chihuahua, but I'm already wary of that breed.

Do You Take Your Bottles to Recycling to Claim Deposits?

I can remember the last time I did that was something like 20 years ago. The strange thing is, I just looked up to see if there were any recycling centers that pay here in Boulder, CO. NOPE! Closest one is in Broomfield, about ten miles away.

So what gives? Is there just very little incentive if the deposit is only 5 cents?

So Who Has Had A Coffee Enema?

Lots of information out there. Lots of pros and cons... some say it can kill you.

And then Florida Man had to get in on it: Java to Go: Couple Addicted to Coffee Enemas
Some people say they're addicted to coffee, but a couple in Florida has taken their coffee habit to a whole new level: coffee enemas.

Mike and Trina, who declined to give their last names (for reasons that may be obvious), are so hooked on coffee enemas that they use them to cleanse their colons at least four times daily, though Trina admitted using them up to 10 times in a single day, according to ABC News.

"I love the way it makes me feel," Trina told ABC News. "It gives me a sense of euphoria." Both she and Mike work from home otherwise, their frequent enemas might not be possible. https://www.livescience.com/27011-coffee-enema-alcohol-enema.html

That's why I am turning to all the experts here on DU for advice about coffee enemas. Can I just go down to the Starbucks and order one up? Maybe this is a good use for the very patriotic new tRump straw?

I'm a left leaning Jewish person. I can't stand Israeli policy.

Should I go back to where I came from?

Which would be Texas.

Can Congress Censure Kellyanne?

Since she and the Rump are just ignoring the Hatch Act, what else can be done to stop her vile racism?

Last Night I Went to "Geeks Who Drink" Trivia at a Bar

Don't remember the question, but the answer was "Melania", so I wrote down "Stupid fucking Melania tRump." I think I should have gotten extra points.

In the end, our team came in 10th out of 11.

For Those Who Don't Think It's Time To Impeach

What we have is a dictator bent on genocide. Enough pretending that everything will be solved next year.

If I had a dollar for every ace I have drawn

I could arm a town the size of Abilene.

Your Alcoholic Beverage of Choice?

Way back in college, mine was JD and Coke in a big old Super Gulp cup.

More recently, it is craft beer from the local breweries. But I do admit that I usually prefer hard cider over beer.

So what is your beverage of choice?

When Was The Last Time You Used a Pay Phone?

I got curious, so I looked up how many are in my city. 85 pay phones in Boulder, CO!!!! https://www.payphone-directory.org/payco.html

Who is still using pay phones? How come so many are still available? Think of the last time you had to make a call but didn't have your cell phone on you. What did you do? Did you ask to borrow someone's phone or did you look for a pay phone?

I don't know why this fascinates me, but it does.
