A nice comfy cushion please

This Tuesday night found me in the unusual situation of bending over a toilet seat with lowered trousers while the piano teacher from the room downstairs closely examined my inner thigh from the back brandishing a big spraycan.
Well it was like this; I arrived for work heavily burdened with music books, laptop etc, and saw a woman of a certain age (mine) pushing her broken down car outside the studios.
"Do you need help?" I asked, little knowing what was in store. "I'll just put my things away and be right back down" So I did and I was.

As we were shouldering the car together, a young man( dreadlocked and nose ringed) was walking past with three dogs on leads. "Why dont you attach your dogs and give us a hand?" I said.
He came over and set to, but kept the dogs with him, next to me. One was a golden retriever, another a boxer and a third indeteminate thingy. As we picked up speed I felt a sudden tearing pain and realised that one of them had sunk its teeth into the juicier part of my thigh...

As I ran into the studios he called, "It's alright, they have all had their rabies vaccinations!"

That's alright then...

ouch, so you've had a tetanus jab recently?

how about hardpard distemper?

joking apart, a dog bite is excruciatingly painful, you have my sympathies!

That first sentence was an attention grabber!

Ai, that sounds very painful! Hope it heals without any of those nasty diseases.

What a jerk. I do hope you heal up quickly.

So which of the dogs was it then? Hope it wasn't the retriever...

I dont know which dog it was I didnt see it, only felt it! So far no signs of rabies...I dont think it was the fault of dogs or owner, just bad luck they were frightened in an unusual situation!

I agree with Marja-Leena, after that first sentence I had to read the rest of the post. I do hope you heal soon.
