Fishin’ Worms

The Thing I’m Doing This Year #16

I’m at the Petco with Gina and Carli in line to get the dogs some shots. This woman explains that the heartworm test checks for hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms.

Naturally, I have to ask, “Does it also look for them fishin’ worms?”

I get a stunned look. And I say, “I’m sorry. Nevermind.” She leaves.

Gina says, “Dad, she was talking to you about our dogs’ health and you interrupted her … (she begins imitating me) … Does it cover fishin’ worms?”

(When she imitates me, I sound really stupid.)

I started laughing so hard I couldn’t stop, tears pouring out my eyes, but I have to get it together; the woman returns with our order.

As she leaves, Gina looking puzzled, imitates me again, saying, “So it doesn’t cover fishin’ worms?”

The next installment … “The Negotiation”
