One of my favorite movies is Sixteen Candles. And while not everyone agrees with me, the movie does make me laugh out loud. Plus, my sisters think this girl from the dance scene in the movie is my doppleganger:
Here’s my high school senior pic – what do you think?
During one scene in the movie, a panicked “Nerd” yells out to the party host to help him out of a tricky situation:
The Nerd ended up drinking martinis and talking girls underpants with Jake. In my life, it’s not nearly enough martinis and playing chase-me-and-try-to-get-your-underpants-that-I’ve-swiped-out-of-the-laundry-basket with Jake.
Jake is the newest addition to the Rice family. My husband had decided our dog Mocha had no one to play with and needed a pal. So we loaded up our alpha female dog and headed out to an adoption event at our local PetSmart. We had gotten Mocha at an event two years earlier, and she was excited about the possibility of a new dog to boss around.
We had checked Jake out online before the event and we were looking forward to meeting him. Since Mocha is an alpha female, we needed to be sure the dogs would get along. They did. And we were the first people to adopt a dog that day.
And since we brought him home, it’s like we are living that scene in Sixteen Candles. But we’ve added some dialog to the script:
But, truly, most of the time our dialog is: “Jake! Thanks for joining our family”:
We encourage anyone looking for a new furry friend to check out rescue sites or shelters first. We adopted Mocha and Jake from Lab Rescue LRCP.
