Jparks and I are currently dog-sitting for some friends of ours and the other night we caught their dog eating shit. Immediately after that I caught Lily nibbling on some shit as if she were sampling it to determine its tastiness level. Let me help you out Lily, IT IS SHIT. NOT TASTY. NOT EVEN LEVEL ONE TASTY.
Now, anytime either dog moves to lick me, I yell "Back shit-eater! No licking!" Jparks maintains that this was just a one off episode and neither dog has consumed any shit since then, but I'm not so certain. We're not home to monitor what goes into their mouths twenty four hours a day and I'm not willing to risk it. Jparks also maintains that I'm fighting a losing battle and that when we have kids they'll be eating shit and other things just as vile. To which I always remark "I don't know what you ate as a kid, but I NEVER ate shit. I was smarter than that."
But he swears I'm wrong and that children out there eat shit. He's so certain of this, that he has asked me to "put it to the internets." So, what do you say internets; did you eat shit as a child? Has your child ever eaten shit? What about anything as disgusting as shit?
