Best Line of the Week

I’m in the park, walking rather than running, overdressed since it went from 30 to 65 degrees without passing GO, when I see a Bullmastiff the size of Pittsburgh.

He’s the color of tanned wheat, with Paul Anka eyes making me think any minute he’ll break into a few bars of, Put Your Head on My Shoulder, which would have been just fine with me.

He sees me looking, strolling over, like any confident male, as if to say…hey baby, what’s shakin, lifting his chin like a gangplank suggesting a good scratch.

How did I know it was a he?  He had a woodie that would have hit it, outta the park, that’s how. I still got it, as they say, even if it’s only noticed by men with four legs.

His owner, looks over his shoulder to find me and Packie, his collar tells me, happily canoodling.

“I grin before saying one of my stock lines, “Is he single?”

“No,” Sven said,” (he looked like a short, bald, fat Norwegian) “but I am.”

“See ya Packie”.

Have a nice weekend everyone.   images

    Is Packie short for Pachyderm?
    His owner’s chat-up line needs some work.

  2. Hahaha! No doubt Packie was rolling his eyes at his owner. I can just hear him saying “not cool man, not cool.”

    Susannah, it sounds like you still have it with the two legged owner, too. He was pretty quick with his reply. If he wasn’t interested he wouldn’t have made his status known.

  4. I didn’t know Norwegians came in short, fat and bald. I thought they were always tall, thin and blonde! (Or maybe that’s what I would hope for)

  5. I guess walking around the park with a mastiff is a great way to meet the ladies. Best of luck to Sven (and Packie too, for that matter).
