    Even though I only shot China berries AT my dog (and am not too sure that I ever hit him), he knows what the slingshot is and tends to pay a bit more attention if I have it out, although haven't even showed it to him in months. Also heels better when I'm carrying a stick (or any little switch).

    "Hubris"

    I must have been drunk on hubris to think my dog wouldn't pick up that poison bird.

    (That overwhelming pride that comes before the fall!)

    susan,

    in the tutelage of our canine concomitants, it is archaic to hurl a polished metamorphic sphere by way of a diminutive, hand-held catapult!

    The first "S" in Susan should be capitalized as should the "I" in "in".

    in my description of the "catapult", i was confident you would consider hand-held and diminutive to be redundant.

    would a hand-held catapult not also already be a diminutive catapult? i think the way i said it one would picture a very small sling shot held between the thumb and forefinger. what i described to the reader might not even be capable of shooting a marble. that, and the shift key has always eluded me?

    They learned to spell down there.... and use big words! One of my favorite words is "Pontificate".... you can see many fine examples of it on RTF as of late.
