So I'm at a client's office the other day, that has several large and friendly dogs. The dogs had already come by on several occasions for petting and attention - as they're prone to do - because this is one of my favorite clients so the dogs all know me.
But... There is always that one time...when you're doing that one thing...that makes for all sorts of the wrong king of interesting.
I'm trying to put a matte overlay on the currently high gloss screen of a laptop. I'm sitting in an office chair pushed back from the desk with the laptop in my lap (screen down), trying to get this #@!& overlay to lineup and lay straight … When the dog comes by for a visit... Nose first... Tung out... I just spent half an hour cleaning the screen on this thing...so a large tung print would be, bad...
I turn in the chair away from the dog trying to frantically wrestle with the film, and not drop the laptop … But that of course instantly turns into a game...according to the dog.
Now I'm spinning around in the chair, yelling No Tungs! No Tungs! with the dog in hot pursuit … while frantically wrestling with the film, and trying to not drop the laptop. This went on for some time, and I'm sure it made for a hell of a sight, but the security cameras did not have an angle on that office - So there is no YouTube of this little dance. But I did finally get the film down - Mid spin - in time to give the dog a pat on the head, and tell him he was a good boy for helping me take care of my cardio for the next freaking month.
