As you know, whenever I see a dog, and that dog is within petting distance, I cannot help myself. I don't care if it's a rat-looking chihuahua or a friendly beagle or a snarling rottweiler. I simply must head over there and give it a pat on the head and perhaps a scratch behind the ear. Maybe it's a sign of personal weakness--I don't know. But I simply must do it.
Well, it turns out you can contract herpes from petting strange dogs. Who knew??
Anyway, that's where it came from so I guess we can just go ahead and not talk about it anymore.
Thanks for your understanding,
