Seeing red

For once, it's not that I'm seeing red because my eye is demonstrating why I don't rely on my vision for taskss (as if seeing me with Julio wouldn't prove that or something). This is the part where I tell an embarrassing story about myself.

We went to dinner this evening, since my grandma is here for the holidays. I'd ordered a cherry Coke, and didn't realize it was in front of me. Dad mentioned it, and I was looking for it. Well, I found it, as it went flying. Julio got drenched. He looked up like "WTF?". (I don't use that much, but it fits well here). Then, when he figured it out, he looked like he was the happiest puppy in the world, and started drinking. It was like he was thinking "It's manna from heaven. Praise the Lord and Hallelujah!!!!"

It looked a bit like I had Clifford for a guide dog. I can just see the people at the table next to us going home and saying "So this blind chick spilled all over her dog..." Very embarrassing... At least it makes an interesting post though.
