A couple days ago my dog Hannah started barking out the front window. Not that this is entirely unusual for her as she will often bark a little when she sees a person walking a dog or a stray cat wandering around.
This time was different. She wouldn't stop. She was using her 'big girl' bark, too. Her 'I mean business' bark. The hair on her back was standing up.
When I'm using my laptop like I was that day I have a pretty good view of my neighborhood. I didn't see anything so went back to FB or whatever I was doing and told her to be quiet. She didn't be quiet. If anything she got even louder.
I started wondering if there was someone bringing me some best diet pills. Or maybe there was *gasp* an ax murderer lurking just out of view! I knew I had to get out of my chair and have a better look. I did. I saw nothing, nobody.
Hannah's barking made me look harder. I glanced at the road. I saw what was causing all the commotion. It was a twig.. with a few leaves on it. The breeze was rustling the leaves.
It's good to know if a TWIG ever decides to attack us we'll be safe. Or at least alerted to its presence.
