The Wife: “Hey, look at this…”
(hands me her iPhone, which is showing the picture seen above.)
Me: “Awww, adorable… who’s is that?” (we have a lot of friends on Facebook who have beagles)
(I scroll down and see ‘I Am Available For Adoption’…)
Me: (handing her iPhone back to her) “Why you little—”
Me: “That was a total setup. You totally set me up.”
Her: (all innocent like) “What? No I—”
Me: (gives her the “who the fuck do you think you’re kidding?” look)
Her: “—Ok, maybe a little. But look at her.”
Me: “No… I refuse…”
Her: “Look at the cuteness!”
Me: “I must have that dog…”
Her: “That was my reaction too!” (she said, confirming the Total Setup-ness of the Obvious Total Setup)
Me: “DAMMIT! I was just talking to Lindsay about this last night…”
And then MomOfWifeOfTJ called.
(Fast-forward about 30 minutes. The Wife had just gotten off the phone with her mother and come back into the room.)
Her: “Ok, so that beagle is available at gotbe—”
Me: “Yeah I already filled out the adoption application.”
Her: bursts out in laughter
Me: “What do you think I was doing while you were on the phone with your mother?”
We may possibly be adopting another beagle. (You can see her page by clicking on the image or the ‘source’ link)
Her name with be Kaylee.
The Moral of the Story: Girls are sneaky and not to be trusted.
Here’s another picture because of the cuteness.
