Have I Mentioned That I'm At The Vet's A Lot?

Last week there was a school delay, and the vet's girls called and asked if they could catch the bus here since their parents had to go to work early. (Our kids ride the same bus.)

My vet (the girls' dad) happened to mention to them on the way to my house that he hadn't seen my puppies in a while. So they asked Becky if he and I saw a lot of each other. (That sounded a bit like he was in the habit of just stopping in after work, which would be kinda awkward, dontcha think?) But I listened to the story.

Becky said, "Um, your dad is our vet. When we have puppies, mom takes them in about every week, so he sees a them a lot."

Okay, for the record, I do not take puppies in every week. It was just that one litter. And yes, they were there every week for 6 weeks, but it was just that one litter in 10 years of raising dogs. Really. But it was the last litter we had, so apparently it's fresh in Becky's mind, as well as the vet's.

So his girls said, "Wouldn't it be cool if my dad and your mom had an affair? Then we'd be like sisters. That would be great."

Okay, I know that I said I wasn't going to make New Year's resolutions, but I am anyway. My resolution? Try not to see the vet so often, it's starting rumors in the community.

Geez. This is not good, people.

OMG, look at those puppies...how cute are they?

And I can't believe your having an affair with your vet...how could you? :)

That's how rumors get started....

Wow, that's kind of weird. It just shows how little kids understand the consequences of things. I think Sam better start taking the dogs to the vet. Or, maybe you just need to make sure there is always a 3rd person in the room, kind of like when you go to the OB. :)

The puppies are cute!

It's really bad when it the vet's KIDS who start the rumors. Things really bad on their home front? Geez.

And that my friend, is how rumors do get started. That is so funny. Does your vet know that you are having an affair?
