Laughing About Nothing ... Dog in Space

Laughing About Nothing ... Dog in Space

How many legs does a dog have it you call the tail a leg?  Four.  Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.  ~Abraham Lincoln

Yesterday was a great day!  Kyle played my assistant while we went to Shadyside.

Being located just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Shadyside is such a quaint, close-knit community that forces you to get out and walk around and explore.  My kind of joint!  We were down there to pass out flyers, meet with business owners and supply posters for the Thrill of the Hunt Dog Gone! Scavenger Hunt. Obviously, the scavenger hunt is taking place in Shadyside, at the end of the month on Saturday June 29th.  If you are a dog owner, you won't want to miss this event!

Traveling about an hour to get to our destination, allows for some serious dashboard time.  I couldn't help myself, I told Kyle I got him his birthday gift.  I also mentioned that I will have to fork it over early.  He politely smiled and shrugged his shoulders.  I said, "Don't you want to know what it is?"  He shrugged again and said, "Umm ya I guess but I know you'll never tell me" without an ounce of enthusiasm.  I'm not surprised, he knows very well that I won't by him toys or video games.  My gifts to Kyle have always been unconventional.  Meaning they are either educational yet fun, or a skill or an opportunity to try something new, which he may have never done so.  I'm all about the experiences in life.  Examples, piano lessons, guitar lessons, flying a plane, swimming lessons, the Harry Potter book set, Chess set, Monopoly game, tickets to see Lion King the musical with the family and so on and so forth.  Even though he loves the gifts, he is still a bit shortsighted by his love of Legos, video games and toys.  At least at this point of his life.

Yes, that's Kyle in the Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C., holding a Lego set! He hasn't changed yet. 6/27/09

Well, little does Kyle know, I purchased him a Bricks 4 Kidz camp for a week.  The morning session is Animal Grossology and the afternoon session is Space and Astronomy -Star Wars.  As we drove, I though I'd get him a little bit psyched up by offering clues.  He wasn't about the guessing game, so I made him.  I said, "Ok, I'll give you two clues, number one, it involves animals and number two it involves space."  Now Kyle's imagination and complete silliness took over.

He was saying, "You got me a dog in space.  You got me a cat in space.  You got me a dog shaped comet.  You got me a dog and a telescope.  You got me a telescope to look at dogs in space."  Then the ultimate comment.  "You got me a dog shaped telescope!"  We both busted out laughing, for what came next took our breath away.  I said, "How does that work, you lift up its tail and look through its bum hole?"  We were dying!   And then, maintaining consistency with our wild imaginations, we took it to the next outrageous level...
