Tonight when I came home I found that Bear was in need of a bath. This wasn’t something I could cure with baby wipes or water & paper towels. So I got everything read and put him in the tub. He started screaming and went for my arm to have something to hold on to. I got him clean but I paid the price for it. My arm is scratched up, so it looks like I got into a fight with a girl. It itches more than anything. I got the bleeding to stop, which is a good thing.
It took a long time to calm Bear down, in fact he was still a little winded when I left him to come write this and throw the towels in the washer. I didn’t plan on tangling with him or doing laundry but surprise it happened. He is much cleaner now. I didn’t have a lot of time to do a complete bath because he was flailing around like a fish out of water. However, I got his bum cleaned and those hind quarters so were in good shape. I made sure the shampoo was rinsed out of him and then it took two towels to wash him. This was a task for two people but what do you do when you are the only person? You rough it and hope for the best. Things could have been much worse but I am just thankful that I didn’t get bitten, that would have posed a serious problem.
So I know my arm is going to itch for a while, that will be annoying but at least my Bear is clean.
It’s been a busy day. Started off with a rainy commute and I was up early but didn’t know why. Thankfully I sprang to life and got moving, otherwise I would have been late to work. As it was I had like 5 minutes to spare. It was a very long commute all because of some water. So water is to blame for my problems this morning and this evening.
When I did have a spare moment I browsed the dating apps and low and behold who do I find on there? The waiter from Cracker Barrel that I asked out. According to his profile he is only 20. I already know he isn’t interested in me but I still expressed an interest in him. While his body is great and he is good looking, I can’t say that I know much about him as a person. So I would want to get to know each other to see if there was compatibility and then go from there. However, I don’t think that is going to happen. My guess is that he is looking for someone who is in his age range and not an old guy like me. Still I had no idea if he was gay and well I guess I know the answer to that question now. I still marvel at how professionally he handled turning me down. While it’s nice to get a nibble now and then I am ready to find someone and delete those damn apps.
There you have it my day. Now I am going to play nurse to my arm and check on Bear. I got him pretty excited, which is totally bad for his condition. I will talk with you peeps later.
