Google Image Search: Word & Picture #160

Today's Word:
pug luau

Today's Picture:

I have always been weird. I was born that way.

I asked my mom what a "dick" was at age 5. I thought professional wrestling was real long after I knew Santa did not exist. I was a mascot in college and in Japan. I am a Kansas City Royals fan. I am weird.

But more proof is needed that I am weird: I belong to the Austin Pug Club. Not only do I belong, but I attend the functions.

This weekend, we are going to the pug luau. Yes, the pug luau. Pug owners bring their pugs, put leis on them, dress them in Hawaiian shirts... it is embarrassingly fun. For one Saturday in Austin, Don Ho becomes re-incarnated in the form a four-legged, heavy-breathing, flat-faced, curly-tail potato of fun.

This is what it looks like:

Oh, I am embarrassed for myself.

You see, I never wanted a dog. Megan wanted a dog. I wanted Megan to be happy. But now that I have a dog, I can not imagine life without a dog. PugPuggy is a blast. When I leave Austin, I miss my dog. I thought only crazy people would miss their dog...

... oh, wait: I'm crazy. Damn.

This weekend is the Austin Pug Club's Pug Luau. I am going. I am going to have a ball. I will take pictures and post them next week. Have a great weekend.

In Summary: I love my dog, I love the Kansas City Royals, I am weird.

Good thing you live in Austin were it is "normal" to be "weird"! (And that you married a therapist! But you've heard that one before...)

Keep Austin Weird!!

Agreed. My weirdness pre-destined me to live in Austin.
