What I’m Known For

This morning, fourteen year old Khaliya came over to get driving directions. I decided to print from the new laptop, so first I had to install the necessary printer drivers. As we waited, she told me about the new puppies her dog, Cinnamon, had recently.

Suddenly Khaliya gasped and said, “OH! Vicky! I forgot to tell you! I pulled a ‘you stunt’!”

“Really?” I asked and my mind raced. What “you stunt” could she be referring to?

“Yeah!” Khaliya said, “I was walking Cinnamon and she took a doodie in the street and I cleaned it up…and I thought, ‘This reminds me of Vicky Somma.'”

So cleaning up dog poop. That’s how I will be remembered on Hunter Street. 🙂

    I think that’s a good thing. Certainly better than being remembered for not picking up the doggy doo.
