It happened again! L.E., my rescue Boxer mix, let her prey drive get the best of her and yes, she got sprayed by a skunk – AGAIN! I could smell her coming. Bless her heart, she couldn’t help it. And I do admire her determination. But this time, I was prepared. I learned my lesson the first time. I washed her half a dozen times then and it still took weeks for the smell to completely vanish. This time I was ready for it. I purchased a product called Skunk Off after the last incident and had it waiting.
True to its name, the Skunk Off worked its magic. After one bath, L.E. smelled as sweet as her lovely personality. Everyone, including L.E., was very happy.
After a cigar (a new and improved Kinky Friedman cigar) and a few Careless Coffees (iced coffee decaf with a shot of Jack Daniels), it occurred to me that I could think of many other uses for Skunk Off. Normally, I don’t do politics but as my friend, Kinky Friedman (yes, I know I dropped his name twice in this blog but that’s just the way I roll), calls someone in politics – poly: meaning many, and tics: meaning blood suckers. Let’s face it, no one enjoys a politician. Mainly because they don’t work very hard, they mostly lie, and get rich at the detriment of the regular folks. Wouldn’t it be great WHEN you hear a politician lie to just whip out the Skunk Off and shampoo that stench away? I think so!
Or, what about that family member that always wants to borrow money or is always causing trouble. Every family has at least one. When he or she starts trouble within the family, wouldn’t it be great to whip out the Skunk Off and shampoo that troubling odor away? I’m pretty sure the answer is yes!
What about when your computer craps out or your cable TV’s not working. When you make the telephone call for help and you’ve waited on hold for an hour only to realize when someone picks up the phone, they don’t speak English, wouldn’t it make you feel better to apply some Skunk Off and erase that negativity? You know you want to!
L.E. can’t help herself. She’s a dog. That’s what dogs do. When people are dogs, they deserve Skunk Off. They really do! Me? I work extra hard to avoid needing Skunk Off applied? What about you? Something to think about. Something to strive for. Baby steps.
