Seattle adventures, life, home, and coffee—in no particular order

The Valentine’s Day present I could have done without


Today, the coffee shop challenge took a backseat to catching up on mail and work after a long weekend in Vegas and an unplanned visit to the vet.

Let me rewind to Sunday evening…

  • 7:00 pm: Landed at SeaTac airport
  • 8:00 pm: Swung by the home of the Chacharon parentels for delicious and spicy homemade kung pao chicken
  • 9:00 pm: Picked up a very excited Jasper the Dog from Auntie Doodle’s
  • 9 to 10:30 pm: Unpacked, unwound, and caught up on homework
  • 10:30 pm: Crashed (thanks, Nyquil)
  • 3:30 am: Jolted awake by a very excited Jasper the Dog; Adam lets him out, presumably to pee
  • 3:40 am: Jolted back awake by a very excited Adam; Jasper is now loose in the yard with something cat-size in his mouth; Upon further discovery with a flashlight, Stephanie discovers the cat was in fact a very dead possum
  • 4:00 am: Adam left for work
  • 6:30 am: Stephanie motivated herself to dispose of the rodent; Went outside to find the dead rodent…missing; Upon further discovery, found the rodent to be…not dead

I’ll spare you the gory details, but let’s just say I’d never make it on the farm. And many, many thanks to the Troll in the basement for helping with my horrible request for an early morning possum favor. Yikes!

After a traumatic day of picturing the possum and a semi-traumatic visit to the vet (a certain canine has an irrational vaccine phobia), it’s time for wine and wood-fired pizza at Via Tribunali in Georgetown with the boo.

Tomorrow, we’ll be back on the coffee trail. Until then, we’re attempting to keep this hunting pup out of trouble.
