Darn you, Pinterest. You and all your stinkin’ adorable puppy photos to find and pin. Which I do. Like a crazy woman.
And what I intended as inspiration for a photo shoot instead resulted in, well, the usual.
You see, there’s this check-your-glucose-level-first shot of a lab puppy eating a soap bubble. I wavered my smartphone in front of my Favorite Kid’s nose and said, perhaps a little too loudly, we’re gonna do this!
We don’t have a puppy, says the kid.
No matter, I say. We’ll use Micron.
So while the neighbors peek from their blinds to see what the glorified heck we’re up to again,
the kid vigorously blows soap bubbles at Micron whilst I crouch on the brown-ish grass with the Canon.
Be adorable! I coach the mighty Micron. Try to eat the bubbles!
Does he? No, no he doesn’t.
The dog is dodging these benign creatures as if they’re mini UFO’s filled with an alien bacteria strain. The same dog that never turns down an opportunity to test the mouth feel of a new object.
Oh, but I’m not discouraged. This is just a test run, y’all.
We’ve got a whole bottle of Gazillion Bubbles on the kitchen counter awaiting the green grass of an Ohio spring.
