Why I Shouldn't Watch TV...

.....The quiet man watched Laurie Parker jog past his car with her Golden Retriever, Sam. Sam was a lot of dog for the petite young woman to keep on a leash. As he watched, Laurie Parker cheerfully admonished Sam and her face flushed with exertion. The dog really was walking Laurie more than she was walking him. She’s got a smile that’d light up a whole damn city.., he thought, grinning to himself. They passed by his car this morning without noticing him, just like they had every morning for the last two months. He took a sip from his coffee and gazed at her as Sam pulled her around the corner and out of sight. Then he pulled out the day’s paper and worked on the crossword.

The dog is the first thing that needs to go.., he thought.

Laurie and Sam arrived back at her house at exactly 7:45 AM. Just like every morning since he’d begun watching her house. Watching her.

This is what I think of when I see commercials for Brawny Papertowels.

Is that wrong?

Interesting. I wish I weren't so mentally soft this morning from the scotch... or I could comment further.
