Itch, itch. The itch is back.

Last night I was enjoying the overcast spring night that is the South in May. I was walking the hounds, as I am wont to do. The Hounds of Bastardville. Old Digger and Dugger, there, for all your grave extermination needs.

Guess who is still irritated.

Anyway, there we were. It was lovely and cool; it had rained all afternoon but now it wasn’t, the sun was beginning to set, I could hear the neighbors clearing their dinner plates, all the flowers were in bloom…

And all of a sudden m’arse itched so bad I wanted to die.

It wasn’t really my ARSE so much as technically my tailbone. It was like a feather was trying to poke out of there, like I was that poor girl from The Black Swan. Did you ever have an itch that was so bad it actually kind of hurt? That is what was going on with my hind end, over there, half a mile from my house.

And did every nighbor on planet Earth have to be out?

“Heyyy, Tallulah! Nice to see ya, girl!”

“Hiiiii, Ethel! Hiiii, Lalula!”

“Are they walkin’ you or are you walkin’ them?” Didn’t one of you say that is your peeve? People say that to me all the time but it does not bug me.

“Are they twins?” People also ask me this all the time, and that is really an asinine question, forgive the pun. First of all, my dogs are the same color, but they don’t look that much alike. Second, dogs don’t COME as twins.

Family Are they twins.

So there was everyone, you know, IN THE WORLD and I got what feels like a million brand-new mosquito bites right where the good Lord split me. I waved at people, then kind of pretended my lower back was sore. I put my hand back there and tried to scratch that way.

Yeah, no. I had on my trench coat, and it was not getting to the itch to do that. So then I pretended my lower-back pain was REALLY GETTIN’ to me, and I even did a back-and-forth twist, in case anyone was studying my every move, then I gave my moneymaker a good shove with my fist.

Still. With the ITCH!

“Hey! Those twin dogs walkin’ you? Heh-heh!”

Those beasts have never had a brisker walk. When we were near my house, I RIPPED open my coat, and SHOVED my hand down the back of my pants and scritch scritch scritched till I dug to China. I don’t even care what the neighborhood association is saying about me.

I can just see the next newsletter. “Just a friendly reminder to put your recycle bins back on Tuesdays, and please, no scratching your ass on our neighborhood streets.”

As usual, I remain Grace Kelly and you, t0o, can come to my etiquette classes.

And now here are some obligatory blurry Roger shots.

Hand1

I do not know why other people take pictures with their iPhones and they do not look like the viewer has cataracts. Anyway, here is Roger, who I keep wanting to call Henry, reacting to my hand moving across the floor.

Comingtohand

Do you want to know what’s an excellent idea? Teaching a cat to play with hands. Oh, it’s cute now when he weighs an ounce, but when he’s an adult 16-pound cat who attacks your hand? Delightful.

Getuhand rodger get hand. not scare!

Ackhandbignow why hand up ther now? maybee scare a littel.

Nohand rogdger sturleeng done wif your dum hand gayme.

Cuddlleswe cudul insted.

I guess that kind of SCRATCHES THE SURFACE of what’s going down in my life. The end.

Good heavens, I’m sexy.

  1. Yes, do tell, Marzipan. Your review was as charming as your usual comments. We must know about Marzipan!
    Happy Birthday, Duffy Lou and Zadge and Zadge’s little brother.
    I don’t really have a problem with itches down south, but the boob itch? Oh Lawdy! When I’m in a full sweat at the gym, I just want to pull those babies out and scratch away.
    Also sometimes when I wake up in the morning, the palm of my hand itches, that kind of itch that you just can’t scratch. No idea what’s with that.
    Only you June can write a post about scratching your ass.

After lunch, I took Edsel to daycare, because he is in this 10-month-old arsey phase and I am trying to burn his never-ending energy, and this is only the second time he has gone sans Talu. He walked in verrrrry slowly, and then as I was signing him in, he took his leash off the counter in his lips and headed for the door. Like, okay, time to go!

  10. Happy birthday, Zadge. My dad told me the drug store was closed. I am the only May child and came a decade later than the others.
    This is going to be such an attractive admission, but here goes. I have a feeling this might be related to the scars remaining from the back surgeries I’ve had. If I am sweating heavily from exercise or such I start to itch right down the center of my spine. It starts mid rib area and continues all the way down to my tailbone. It stops there, but by then the damage is done. Let me tell you from experience there is no way to gracefully scratch the lower half of your spine into your pants. There’s not even a caveman-like way to do it in public to adequately bring welcomed relief.

  20. Hah, I was going to mention both Least I Could Do and Butt Paste in my comment but apparently people beat me to BOTH OF THEM. I think Butt Paste is more commonly used for babies though. It is probably meant for mild diaper rash. I kind of doubt you have any degree of diaper rash on your tailbone.
    The “Are they twins?” thing cracked me up. It’s annoying enough when people ask that about PEOPLE, but dogs? I mean, I suppose any litter of dogs would all be fraternal twins, right? Technically speaking. People used to ask if my cousins were twins all the time when they were little. I don’t really understand why because, I mean, when kids are little their age is pretty easy to tell from how tall they are. If one is a lot taller than the other? PROBABLY NOT TWINS.
    I think I sleep too late to actually make it here on time for comments related to the original post, so now this feels really off-topic and I need to make up for it. So: I always feel really uncomfortable watching a dog take a dump. I think it has something to do with my uncle’s old dog who always had a really human-like expression of embarrassment and discomfort, as if to say “seriously? you’re WATCHING this?” when we took her out. I mean, cats get litter boxes and those are often closed-off and private. I think we need to be more respectful of dogs’ privacy and boundaries than we are.

  21. Is that Edsel in the Small Dog room? I’m thinking it is…he found the puddle of pee first. When the guy came to mop it up, then Edsel eventually tried to run and slide through the big wet spot. The basset hounds are fascinated by Edsel. I can see why they put him in the Small Dogs room today. There are huge beasts in the Large Dogs area this time … not sure if that is Lu that I see in Large Dogs, but if it is..she is a leader among canines..nobody messes with Ms. Lu.

  62. The itch, the itch, the itch in back.
    Story time. I was sitting in Adult Sunday School no less, when my friend leaned over, and in a slightly too loud stage whisper, announces “I have a terrible itch just above my anus”. Once I lifted my jaw back into place, I started laugh. To this day, I really don’t know how I managed to stop “cracking” up.
