There's a potatoe in my hair soup!

Let me guess. You are cocking your head to the side, cringing your face and saying "EWWWW....HAIR SOUP? WTH?  

Well...if you are a dog or cat owner you would understand this completely. LOL
Yes...I own 3 dogs, 4 if you want to count my Dad's dog, who is living here temporarily. I also groom dogs out of my yes...there is HAIR!!! home doesn't look like the inside of a kennel. I clean my home on a regular basis. I have to when you add two children to the mix. :)

So anyways....back to the soup. How many have you ever sat down at the dinner table and pulled a hair out of your spaghetti? If you said never...then you're lying. I know it sounds repulsive, but seriously...if you know that it's your spouse's hair, then what's the big deal, right? He or she showers's not like you are at a restaraunt and it belonged to some Joe Blow behind the counter who has been sweating all day over the grill and who the hell knows how long ago he has showered.

One evening during my first year of marriage, I made a nice dinner for my husband. I served ravioli's, garlic bread and a salad and one long hair. My husband pulled it out of the sauce and ran to the bathroom gagging. At first I was pissed that he would act that way over my hair, but then I saw that the hair was black, the same color as our precious cocker spaniel, Annie. I laughed so hard that I nearly peed my pants. A few minutes later, my hubby walks into the kitchen. His face was flushed.

I patted him on the back and said, "Honey, if it makes you feel any better, Annie just got a bath today." He shook his head and sat back down at the table. Well, that was nearly fifteen years ago and many hairs later......he still get grossed out, but he doesn't run to the bathroom gagging anymore.

So as a pet owner...finding a hair in your soup...well....that comes with  the territory. Whether it's my spouse's hair or my yappy chihuahua...I gonna keep smiling and eating my dinner...because a little dog hair isn't gonna kill me.


  1. Cute little story, Jamie but so very true! What I don't understand do they get in the fridge too? Years ago, like Bobby, I would have gagged too (didn't like dogs) but all that has changed! The day might come when you wished you could still battle with those hairs. Love my Maddie girl!

  2. Love the pic and love this, I have three dogs, a cat, 2 guinea pigs and 2 turtles and 6 kids...there has been hair somewhere! Sadly mainly mine...I shed more than the dogs!!! :0)
