Bad Day

I just wanted to gripe - Today on the way to work I got attacked by three dogs. I was just minding my own business walking in the middle of the road far away from anybody's "territory" and three large dogs started barking at me. Usually if you ignore them, they forget about you, so I just ignored them and kept walking, but they got closer and so I started to run, and a dog bit my skirt and pulled me and I was freaking out and screaming and nobody was around. So just when I thought I was going to die and be mauled by 3 large dogs, my mototaxi in shining armor came along and gave the dogs a "chih. chih." and they backed off. I ran sobbing into the mototaxi until I was sure the dogs weren't going to eat me. Then I was so shaken (I feel stupid now) I cried til I got to work. Then about two hours later, my good old laptop decided to freeze on me and hasn't turned back on since. On top of all this I have about 100 mosquito bites all over me, they are particularly concentrated on my elbows. But I finally have an appointment for my eye on Tuesday and 3 of my favorite people in peace corps will be going with me so, yay! So tomorrow, Hot dogs, anyone?

So sorry but I'm glad you're safe. Try unplugging the laptop, taking the battery out for about 10 mins and then putting it back in. It worked for me once or twice.

Sorry to hear you're having a bad day. I'm glad the dog thing turned out ok. Maybe start walking with a big stick or bat...

holy crap that's rough. I hope you're doing better. im pretty sure you've already thought o this, but pepper spray works really well on dogs, and sometimes even a little water does the trick..

best of luck!

These kind of days are just the pits.

And inevitable.

Solution:
Cry in the moto taxi.
Find some sort of chocolate.
Come over for a hug.

We're here when you need us....er....except when we're not.

Abrazos...
