Hot Dog!

Well, today Buster's "almost-catch" was a cast-away hotdog in a bun. Ray prevented the grab, so Buster had to do without the juicy meat morsel. The day before our pup was a little luckier. Another half-eaten cupcake outside of the pre-school. Do those kids get cupcakes every day? I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I used to sneak into the snack closet while Mrs. Forbing was out of the room and the other kindergarteners where napping. She had Oreos in there. We never had Oreos at home, so I couldn't resist pilfering a few extra. Mmmmm.

Back to Buster and his hot dogs. Thinking about what we used to make with hotdogs in the deli just frightens me. Have you ever seen or eaten ham salad? Okay, those two words don't belong together AT ALL. The concept is just so completely wrong. But people like it. It looks like a pink, thick type of hummus if it is ground up as much as we did.

But what about hot dogs? Well, ham salad was sort of the sausage making of the deli world. You really don't want to know what's in there. Try full nitrate lunchmeat. And how about a little bit of out of code baloney? A red pepper, a yellow pepper, a green pepper. Oh yes, a few ham ends, and the topper: expired hot dogs. I guess I forgot to mention that they were ground up lovingly in the meat grinder...where we also made sausage.

Oooooh. I feel like I need to go on a cleansing fast now.
