I share my house with one dog and three cats. No human except for me. Today, I was watching the DVD of “Book Club” starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, etc.
The movie has some outrageously funny moments. You know, actual laugh out loud, maybe even a snort or two funny moments.
I had just taken a bite of a scrumptious lemon tart (my dinner, don’t judge) when one of those funny moments occurred. I inhaled some lemon tart and began choking on it. The dog is not yet CPR certified so she was no help. The cats couldn’t care less. (Ha – they sure as hell would care a bit more if I missed feeding them their dinner.)
After choking for a minute, I could finally catch my breath. And what do you think was the first thing I did? Yup, rewind the movie to find out what happened during that funny moment when I was choking. I do have my priorities, right?!?
Anyway, my new motto is don’t eat while watching comedies – at least until the dog gets her CPR certification or learns the Heimlich maneuver.
