high five baby!

I went for a run at lunch. What a beautiful day! I was so happy its Friday that i gave ALL the other runners i saw a high five. Only two of which returned the hand slap. An interesting social experiment to be sure. I find that runners as a breed are generally cranky.

You know, since I've had this dog kicking around my house, I've discovered that dog owners aren't the friendly, chatty people I always imagined them to be.

Or else maybe it's just us?

When they don't return the high five, you should turn around and follow them at a distance of about two feet. Just to make them nervous, and maybe they'll rethink their rude behavior.

As you figured out, it's my mom's dog. He kind of lives with us now for the forseeable future and possibly forever, but I'll still always think of him as my Mom's dog.

High five!

this reminds me of a time, many years ago, when after a rave with my sister (yes, this was a long time ago) we decided to walk the golden gate bridge and be on "hug patrol". The sun had just come up and there was tons of runners. Some of them hugged us back and others just ran away totally freaked out. Yeah, we didn't seem like we were on drugs or anything...
anyways, your story made me laugh xoxo

I'd give you a high five in a heart beat! You're like a jogging goodwill ambassador or somethin'. I did picture you kind of running after them and brandishing your high five indignantly, as Chris suggests!
