Twas the night before Christmas and all was calm
'cept for a boy and his dog and...
...a chicken flavored nylabone?
I was peacefully chewing on my chicken bone when suddenly my chicken nylabone was gone! I looked around to find it sitting inside the mouth of my 18-year-old Uncle! I don't mind sharing, but come on-my Uncle is going to put his teenager germs on my nylabone and I don't want any part of getting the "crazies"-yeah, you know what I mean. Just look at every other 18-year-old boy you know. Their favorite word is "poop."
So, I looked up and there he was with my nylabone sitting in between his teeth. I incredulously look up at him: Seriously? Seriously?! Dumbfounded, all I could do was sit there and watch.
He bent his head down towards me and nudged me with the bone. Naturally, I grabbed hold of it with my teeth. I'll teach this boy not to chew on my nylabone. So, I chewed on one end and he...chewed on the other end? Hmm...that idea gave me a thought.
Next thing I know it turns into a game. He stands up and pulls it out of my mouth. I wanted my bone back so I jumped up and tried to grab it out of his mouth. This started a tug-of-war game with an end of the chicken flavored nylabone in my mouth and one end in his.
Shortly after this game of tug-of-war began, I noticed that my Uncle wasn't really chewing on my nylabone, it was just sitting in between his teeth.
He started pulling back and I started pulling back even harder until it hit me. I can really teach this boy a lesson.
I pulled back really hard and let go of the nylabone which caused it to fall inside my Uncle's mouth giving him a full taste of chicken and plastic and dog germs!
He promptly spat the bone out and I picked it up, carried it to my bed and resumed chewing my bone. The things I have to go through...
My Uncle and I have a good relationship so we toy with each other like that with no hard feelings.
Later that evening he read me the story of the true meaning of Christmas while I sat and listened to him.
And, on Christmas Day, he massaged my back and head with a back massager while I sat still and thought....I totally have him wrapped around my dew claws. Sucker!
