The Duck is Dead, long live the duck!
Below, Bella naps after killing my duck.
The Resident Bi-Ped (RBP) spent the day watching the Olympics on TV. He got very interested in the Luge events. We thought the Luge was dangerous following the terrible accident that had taken place. But no, the the RBP says he was studying the technique they use. He says he will work hard to perfect his technique and practice to be ready to enter the Luge in four more years when the next Olympics takes place. We did not understand until he pointed out that the Luge is the only Olympic Sport that you do laying down, a position he seems to practice a lot. If laying down is all it takes, then we have discovered a natural talent that should not be wasted. We can't help but wonder what the practice sessions look like, and when they hold try outs, exactly how do you determine who the winner is if they begin and end the event prone? Luckily we live close to where the US Olympic team spends its time in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so maybe he can take his Laz-e-boy down and participate in the try outs.
Bella reminded me that there is a reason God gave dogs such lovely fur coats. The Luge is done with the participant wearing a very tight suit. The image of our RBP in a skin tight latex suit popped into her mind and if she can't get that image out she may not be able to sleep tonight. At the very least we will both have barking nightmares in the middle of the night. I suggested to Bella that she think about squirrels to get rid of the image, she says that she barks in the night when she dreams of squirrels also.
