Lucy’s prophesy is coming true.
A few weeks ago I had a dream. We were in my mother-in-law’s condo in Toronto, 22 floors above a cool neighborhood. Lucy was looking out the window. She turned to me and said, in a very sweet doggy voice, “They’re giving out free hot dogs down on the street.”
I didn’t have the heart to tell her that they weren’t really free. But then I woke up anyway.
Today I got a coupon via email from one of the local supermarkets. “Buy one, get one free on any package of Oscar Mayer hot dogs.”
I don’t eat hot dogs. The last time I did (in sixth grade), it was undercooked and upset my stomach. But I was tempted to go buy them for Lucy, who eats anything. One time about a year ago when we were walking in the park, she found a couple of French fries on the ground under a bench. She still checks that spot every time we go to the park, twice a day. Last week she found some Tostitos there, proving that persistence does pay off.
