That Bat

Remember the bat last Friday? And remember how I brought it home and kept it iced all weekend? Yeah. The State Vet from DEP and I had a nice talk this morning. It was rabid. I told her that I thought I should wait a couple weeks and then start drooling and baring my teeth at coworkers, just for grins and chuckles.
Whadaya think?

Yes! Please do!
And please capture the looks on their faces!

With that kind of sense of humor, you'd fit right in with my coworkers.

Well, the 35 and over ones, anyway. Most of our new-hires are civilian trained these days, and they don't seem to have the same sort of twisted sense of humor that we ex-military folks display.

How could you NOT do it? Brilliant opportunity not to be wasted here. Go forth and drool.

Debby- i'd start right way if I were you- drooling and baring my teeth- I been doing it for years.

I am here for a reason though- i was wondering about mike from the ifs of Og- you seem as familiar with him as anyone, and I truly did like him and have had him heavy on my mind lately.

ill keep my eyes peeled for this one...I'm always looking for something new and anyone with a song titled "Steve Earle" with Gram parsons a part of the lyrics is worth a shot.

Now I know why your "lady of the bat" screamed, ran to the garage, and shut herself away! Instinctively she knew the bat was rabid. Some people, (like you, Debby) are just way too cool, calm and collected the get all out of sorts over things even like rabid bats.

Glad you keep rubber gloves and ziplock bags in your truck to protect yourself and others. Did you (or maybe that freaky secretary at your workplace) call the screaming "lady of the bat" to clue her in on the situation and a possible cleaning regime for her back door?

Debby said...

PW - yup, the folks certainly were called, and DEP will meet with them to take a look around, probably some time next week. Oh. They were my leather palmed work gloves, not rubber, although I do have rubber gloves for sewage treatment plants.

Welcome, Bulletholes. No. Do not know Mike, although I believe that he's a very wonderful writer. I'm concerned as well, but have a habit of being way too persistant. I do check in with him each morning, along with my other blog stops, and I say a little prayer each time that I don't see activity on his site. You just can be certain that it is something big going on, because a writin' sort o' person, can't be stopped. We just run on and on and on.I'm concerned for him and his as well.

FF - and if it is sufficiently off-putting enough, I'll let you know. You can give it a try on the door to door sales folk.

Hal and Al (now that has a ring, doesn't it?) - You should not be encouraging every whack job you meet.

I think you should act like Batman and start talking all gravelly.

Mary Paddock said...

Deb-I can think of a certain secretary it might benefit. :)

Mikey said...

Wow. I'd give anything to have seen that lady when she found out it was rabid. I bet she screamed again...
Craziness!

Debby said...

Redlefty, I submit this blog as evidence that I am not mysterious enough to do 'Batman'.

Mary...do not go there. She's being all sunshine and roses to everyone right now, her attempt to underscore 'my unreasonableness'. My take: this proves that she can behave in a professional manner and it needs to be a requiremet that she behave like this all the time.

Mikey: I was going to stop in and see her, but thought maybe I'd call...
