Lesson Learned From The Dog
Saturday, March 17, 2012
We were out at Wal-Mart and it was well past lunch time when we went to check out. I was tired of shopping, my stomach was rumbling, and I was grouchy. Of course they have all the tempting sweet candy and savory snacks right there by the register where they are in your face. The person ahead of me had a lot of things so I was stuck there next to all of the goodies when a thought came to mind about the dog. I can put a chunk of cheese right in front of her and tell her her to leave it. She will sit there and turn her head away to avoid looking at the treat because she'll want to snatch it if she does. She won't look until I tell her she can have it. So, I averted my eyes and looked the other way. I distracted myself by watching people walk by and looking at the non food items on the opposite side like chap stick, grill lighters, and Germ X. I learned a tactic for avoiding temptations from the dog and I made it through checkout without any munchies. It's been a good day.
