MacGyvering It

I made a new banner for my etsy shop today. It's cool that I have eight free hours a day to work on such things.

Other than that, I've got nothing!

Oh wait, dog story. Last night, my loser friends invited me over because they didn't have dates for valentine's day and wanted to hang out.

Oh right, I didn't have a date either.

Son of a . . .

Anyhow, I brought The Dog because he is alone all day while I work, and it seemed wrong to leave him alone all night too.

When I arrived at their apartment, I realized I had forgotten his leash. At 26 lbs of squirminess, I was not going to carry him across the parking lot and up three flights of stairs.

Time for a MacGyver-esque plan.

My super long purse strap? Why yes, that would make a fine leash. It's not detatchable though, so I just looped the strap through his collar and held onto the purse end of it.

However, I completely underestimated the strength of an overgrown shih tzu with a full bladder.

Off he goes, trailing my purse behind him, and me yelling, "wait, I NEED those credit cards, come baaaaaack!"

MacGyver never had these types of problems.
