Best Story of the Week…October 24

A woman with enough plastic surgery to make her eligible for Mount Rushmore, is in Starbucks on her phone.

As I’m pouring milk I hear her say, “I don’t know about Halloween. Should he be a clown or a pirate. I can’t decide. He refuses to wear a mask so, there’s no way he’s going as Trump or Hamilton, which is so disappointing.”

She ends her call as I’m about to leave so I say, “Must be fun having a son to dress up.”

Her brows shoot up like rockets.

“Son?” She thinks for a minute. “Oh, I was referring to Henry, my English bulldog.”

Only in New York.

    Even in podunk Durango the pet supply stores have doggy costumes. Kyra really should get the angel wings, I think, just for the irony of it!

    That poor boxer! It reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry says “But I don’t wanna be a pirate!”.
