Dog Fight

Cannot believe I am telling you this. Please don’t think less of me – I was tired and cranky, ok??

So, last night I was taking a bubble bath, relaxing with a novel whose story line totally escapes me. I was hoping to watch a movie with the KoD later on once the kids were asleep and he had finished watching his news programs. (That’s a vent for a different time).

KoD came upstairs for something, and as he was on his way out I called to him to ask what he was watching, and he said “the Dog Fights”. The what? My husband, my peace loving sweet husband, was watching dogs tear each other apart? Instead of spending time with me? What is wrong with this man? I got so steamed…. My relaxing bubble bath was relaxing no more and I pulled the plug.

He finally shlepped himself up to our room where I must have given him a very dirty look. I then returned to my book, and perhaps turned my back on him. Perhaps. Finally, seeing that he was totally clueless that he had done anything wrong I let him have it. “Instead of spending time with your wife you think it’s ok to watch dogs fighting? Such a cruel sport, and you’re watching it?? How dare you!”

He stood there open mouthed at my angry barrage. Then he laughed. Man, he laughed so hard my stomach started to hurt! In between breaths he explained to me, that he was watching the Military Channel. He was watching a show about airplanes “dog-fighting” during the war years. At this point I started to laugh too – I should have known that. I should have. I was tired and cranky – but hey, I made my KoD laugh, right? That has to count for something. ::FACEPALM::

And yes, dear, I know you were watching the military channel since before I was born.

Dog fighting. Who’d have thunk it?

    @KoD, we have a number of toy planes in the house. We can explain, with visual aids, for the QoH the difference between dog fighting and dog fighting.

    Hadassah, forgive me chucking in my own tuppence ha’penn’orth….

    ….but why is it morally superior, to watch enemy forces vying to shoot one another out of the sky to a certain, horrible death, leaving grieving widows and orphaned children behind, in preference to watching two mutts snapping at each other’s fur?

    Good shabbos to you and yours

    Thanks Hadassa, I learned a new word here. One of the reasons I go to english-speaking blogs is to learn more english, and your blog is a true gold mine. I learned a lot of cooking vocabulary and also a lot about how people live in english-speaking countries and the specificities of their, say, administrative vocabulary you would never come across in a language school…
