Dear Future Husband,
I’m playing with the idea of getting a puppy. Thoughts? I mean, I really want one. But, I have a few concerns. Besides the obvious “it costs money, it requires time and attention, it will make me actually get up early on the weekends and it will most likely destroy AT LEAST one piece of my very expensive furniture” reasons, I’m also considering the following:
What if you don’t like dogs?
What if you already HAVE a dog?
What if you already HAVE a dog AND your dog doesn’t like my dog?
What if my dog keeps me from going on dates with you because I have to go home to let it out first?
What if we can’t take spur-of-the-moment trips because I have no one to watch my dog?
What if you are *GASP* a cat person?
What if you are – HEAVEN FORBID – a cat person who actually has a cat?!
You see, I want a puppy because you’re not yet in my life. But I can’t get a puppy because you’re not yet in my life.
Sigh. Being considerate is a curse. A curse that is currently keeping my carpets puppy pee free, but a curse all the same.
PS. In the unfortunate circumstance that you have a cat, it will have to go. I’m allergic.
