You know what happened, right?
Flash initiated DefCon 9 and proceeded to make life a living hell for me and the plumber.
The plumber has dogs and recognized an anxious, excitable dog who hadn’t yet been on the treadmill for the day.
I put Flash outside for a little while when the plumber replaced the disposal. When he went to check something in the garage I let Flash back in. Somehow the two of them crossed paths. The plumber came back into the kitchen as Flash made a mad dash from my office, across the house and into the master bedroom. Then he raced out of the bedroom and back across the house to the living room.
The plumber stuck his head out of the kitchen door as Flash raced past. “Hello, Flash.”
I’ve never seen my dog do a double take. He skidded to a stop and stared up at the plumber. The look of surprise on his face was priceless. He actually shut up for a minute or two.
Of course, the peace didn’t reign supreme, but it was a great moment.
