Cute story! One of my wieght watchers leaders had a similar experience, but in her case she would have been dead if she had not lost the weight.
Her DH backed up without looking and ran the car over her (now slim thank Goodnes) body. She lived to tell about it and that was her big woo hoo to realize what would have been the result if she had not lost the weight.
She(WMBO) was going on a business trip to Arizona, so I took her to the airport at some unGodly hour. I stumbled through the kitchen, got my coffee, opened the doggy door to let the girls out and we headed for the car.
At the airport, She slid her car key off the ring and took the rest of her keys with her. I drove her car home and as I reached the fromt door, I realized I had one and only one key in my pocket and it was for a car. How was I going to get in?
I went around the back door and tried the door knob, hoping that I had been just stupid enough to leave the door unlocked. No such luck.
Tawny came out to greet me. Hey, I thought, maybe I could reach in and unlock the door through the dog door. No way, the deadbolt latch was just out of reach.
Then I thought, if I could just get my shoulder in I could reach it. So I tried that.
It might have worked, but instead, I realized I could now get BOTH shoulders and my formerly ample gut through the dog door.
I was able to gain entry to my house through the dog door!
