Chocolate-Covered Cherries These Are Not

There is plenty to deplore about this recent heat wave. All the shit-covered water balloon shrapnel now littering my yard is at the top of my list.  I picked up the shards of the first couple hundred blasted balloons. Then I noticed Sadie, Unconventional Wisdom’s official dopey dog, helping me, and I thought, “Probably I should stop you from eating them but you’re a dog, you’ll be fine.”  In fact it seemed a perfect solution.  The kids love smashing them, dog loves eating them, and dad loves not having to pluck the shards out of the grass.  Sadly, the bubble burst tonight when I mowed over a couple piles of rainbow-colored dog shit, strewing the confetti across my lawn.  I hope the snow comes early this year.
