21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

Cool Beans!

This week my boss brought me a calendar and an application for training classes from the Petsmart in my neighborhood. So while I was out and about this afternoon, I stopped in to sign up for one.

One of the classes said Puppy/Toy and I wasn't sure if it was for toy breed puppies or for puppies and toy breeds. I walked right into the trainer for the class, a sweet little lady named Bea. It turns out that it was going to be either/ or, depending on who expressed the most interest. She has another lady with 3 toys who wants the class. She told me that if I signed up Jaz she would make it a toy breed class.

Of course, I grabbed the opportunity. This class sounds much better. It's 8 weeks instead of 6 and the first class is owners only. No dogs. She explains what we will be doing with the dogs and gives us homework to help prepare them for the class.

When I walked up to the register to pay, the check out clerk (baby dyke if ever I saw one) said, "You're gonna love this class. I have my Jack Russell in one of her classes right now and after 4 weeks she was a whole different dog." Neato skeeto.

Some other things I did during my afternoon travels? Bought one of Starbucks new fruity frapuccinos. This one was a grande creamy tangerine. Very nice on a horribly hot day. Not quite as nice as the orange flavor that they had several years ago. But nice enough.

I also went to the grocery store and laid in some provisions for my little vacation. Blue corn chips and 5 layer bean dip. Aged cheddar and hot pepper jack cheeses. Salad fixin's. A roma tomato and basil foccacia. Wild mushroom and cheese ravioli. Strawberries. Whole grain nut bread. Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream. A bottle of Dry Creek Vineyard chardonnay. Peach mango sparkling water. Cracked pepper water crackers.

Then I stopped at the video store for a romantic comedy and a couple of dramas. All I need is a beautiful old woman in my bed and I'll be set. Most likely I'll have to be content with the dog and the cat.

How much work do you think I'll get done?

Ahh, sounds like a wonderful vacation to me! I will have to check out the new creamy tangerine frappucino (hmmm, I think a trip to Starbuck's after the gym is in order this afternoon!). I tried the bananas and cream one the other day and it was to die for!

LOL Sarah! I was called sir a few times back in the day when I was young, thin, and had a crew cut. It was always guys though. No woman ever mistook me for a man ;^)

Hi Sandra! You enjoy that cross country trip. You know that you're in for a real treat.

Hey Ting! Make sure you tell them to not be stingy with the tangerine syrup.
