So, what I said last night about Scooter's tail healing? Well, that was a lie. This morning's tail inspection revealed that he is still chewing at it and the fur-hole is bigger. Because Scooter abhors the e-collar (I think he would literally gnaw his own head off to get out of it), we decided that the next best preventative measure was to wrap his tail in athletic tape. You can tell from his pitiful look that he doesn't much like this option either. But it's either that or the e-collar, I told him, so he better man up and get used to a wrapped tail until he can leave it alone.
In other Saturday morning news, I ran some errands this morning and bought the remaining accessories for my Halloween costume. No, I'm not going to reveal it until Halloween, but I am pretty pleased with it, and if I do say so myself, I think it may very well be my best costume to date. In the meantime, Jerry went to the liquor store to begin the stockpile for our Halloween party on Friday. He's going to buy a "party ball" (it's like a mini-keg of beer, but it's too small to do keg-stands with -- dangit) and an assortment of other alcoholic beverages for the wop he's gonna make. I'm totally stoked for our party (only 6 days away!) and I can't wait to see what everyone dresses up as!
Otherwise, today is a running rest day, and tomorrow I am meeting Wendy again for an early morning 10 miler in Boca. Then, tomorrow afternoon, Jerry and I are joining some friends to tailgate and go to the Dolphin game down at Dolphin stadium. Should be a drunken-football-tastic time!
