Now I'm on the move they got me hoppin' these fences/Ay little homie your defence is defencless

it was almost an ordinary day, just an ordinary day...that is monday...but then, all kinds of un-normal things happened...(and only slightly embellished)

well, i went to work...that's what i do...i'm 24 years old...i go to work.

i got an email from an old friend...well, he's 22, and less old than i, but nonetheless, still a little old....

work work work...and then the adventure began.

i took a walk with my friend anna g...we were walking downtown on a quest to first find a new coffee shop, and then find out the hours of the coffee shop...

being the summer of "never have i ever, but now i really have," anna decided to help me out for the day...she found a tree...i do not climb trees...bees live on trees, lizards (and snakes) climb up trees, birds live in trees...squirrels jump from tree to tree...doesn't lime disease live on trees? all sorts of things have kept me from climbing up trees...call me deprived, if you will...i just call it educated??? (or really, i'm just a sissy who doesn't like her feet off the ground)

well, we found a tree and before i knew it, anna was half way up the thing...she hopped down...and when i say hop, i mean, she basically jumped 10 feet to the ground and then said, "your turn."

i looked at her like whoa...and thought, umm, ain't going to happen...but i will fall for all sorts of peer pressure (don't get any ideas), and so i made my way up that tree...and i'm still here, hopefully lime disease free...and i climbed up that one branch, and sat/stood there for a second...i had indeed climbed a tree...my feet were a good foot off the ground (both of them, i'm a real daredevil!)

that's enough for one day, never have i ever, but now i really have...on to the coffee shop we walked...

we walked...we found...we saw...we started to walk home...

we passed by this lady's house...two ladies were outside and asked if we had seen some dogs...well, we had...we didn't lie, and told the two that we had indeed seen the dogs, Murphy and Tiny Tim...they were now lost...we had another mission...

we walked, and we walked...through the rain (really just a sprinkler), through the destruction (like some road work), up mountains (slight inclines in the sidewalks), and through the valleys (like stepping off the sidewalk into the road)...and there were no dogs...

the community came together, though, my friends...people were out looking for these pups...we heard voices for miles screaming, "tiny tim....murphy...."

anna and i were not giving up...i've never really had a pet before, but anna tells me that losing one is the worst feeling...i'll believe her...i was really just thinking, what are we going to do if we find these two animals, because i surely can't pick one of them up...(i mean, these are little dogs too, but still....what if they bite?)

well, we walked about 10 miles (or maybe 2) around various blocks, and then i spotted one of them...murphy! SUCCESS!

never have i ever, but now i really have, looked for and/or found a lost animal...

we got our hands on the dog and led him back to the house...but, at the university of alabama, 50% is failing, my friends...and we still had a job to do...tiny tim was going to be found, or we weren't going home....

or, actually, we were on our way to giving up, when the ladies drove by in the car, and low and behold...there was tiny tim, safe and sound...

smiles all around...and we were even invited to iced tea one day...however, you can't be too certain about things these days...what if it was all a ploy to send people out in search of dogs to then invite them over....like hansel and gretel...

yeah, me and anna are way too smart to be falling for that!....

so, instead, we just returned to our homes...

it was a successful monday night, full of multiple never have i ever, but now i really have...
