Just another day at the theatre

(I have hidden a message in this post. It should not be to hard to "de-code" :) Have fun. If you don't figure it out I will probably post tomorrow, or maybe not because I won't be around for the next few days. Definitely on Saturday though. I will be back then. Have a good rest of the week everyone!

Me and Sherman went to a movie with a couple of our friends last weekend and he did so good. (By the way, The Other Boleyn Girl is an excellent movie) Anway, we got there about 30 minutes early so we sat in the theatre and talked for a while. The theatre filled up really fast and was PACKED! During the previews a guy was sliding through the isle behind us and he dropped his popcorn and it went into mine and my friends lap and all over the floor. Sherman sat up and looked at me and stuck his head on my lap. He was trying SO very hard not to eat it. I kicked as much of it away from him as he could and after a few minutes he settled down and didn’t try to eat any of the popcorn through the whole movie. Then as the movie was ending the popcorn guy dropped his soda and it leaked under the seat and soaked Sherm, I didn’t know until after the movie because Sherman didn’t move a muscle but was all wet and sticky when we got up. After that my friend was balancing a big box of nerds in the cup holder on her chair and accidentally bumped it so nerds went bouncing everywhere (I never realized how much noise a spilled box of nerds could make, it was just embarrassing!!) Sherman did not try to eat those either and he barely moved. The movie ended about five minutes later. The lights came on and I looked down at Sherman (this is when I realized the spilled soda, GROSS!!) and he looked horrible. He was all wet and soggy looking, and since the soda has dried a little he had popcorn and nerds stuck all over his belly, and all down his legs and sides. (At least I didn't have to shave gum out of his fur this time. Sometimes I hate movie theatres) He looked so funny, gross and sad at the same time. He looked at me with the most pathetic look on his face. I brushed him off as good as I could and decided not to go to dinner with my friends but took him home and gave him a nice long bath and got him all cleaned up and looking fresh.

Aww, sad secret message!! I won't give away what it says, but that certainly was a clever way to tell us...Lol.

WOW - Sherman did excellent - with all those food distractions. What a mess for him. I bet he was wondering what was happening! Apparently, that guy was VERY clumsy! Or a trainer in disguise! (kidding)

Clever way to share the news. Sniff sniff.
