It was no surprise when we found our neighbor’s dog in our yard because we share an older back fence that periodically requires repair.
Stephen attempted to retrieve the dog to hand her back while I observed from inside. Afraid of the two-legged stranger, the little creature kept running away.
It all seemed fairly normal until the neighbor handed his son to Stephen.
I thought Stephen had lost his mind. I realized the neighbor was not only giving us his dog, but he was giving his son to us as well…and Stephen was taking him!
Like a bad dream, time stood still. I tried to run but couldn’t move, I tried to scream but no sound came out. Everything started spinning out of control.
Fortunately my panic was short-lived. The kid picked up the dog and handed her back to his dad. Then Stephen did the same with the little boy.
Stephen regularly checks the fence now just in case the neighbor decides to change his mind.
May the farce be with you!
