My commute to work this morning was briefly interrupted. There was a small weiner dog running across a major intersection, being pursued at low speed by an big, white, animal control van with a flashing yellow light on top. Both of them were crossing traffic, and cars were turning in all directions trying to get out of the way. It was funny how one small weiner dog could affect hundreds of people. Maybe there’s a lesson in here somewhere–something intensely deep and meaningful. Or maybe it’s just a runaway weiner dog. Who knows?
