um, i was bitten by a dog today.
i am not lying.
janie and i were exercising via walking and the dog came up around behind me and lashed out at janie. i pulled on janie's leash to get her away from the dog and started yelling "no!"
the dog circled behind me and i expected him to go at janie again, but instead it bit me on the leg.
bit me on my damn calf!
of course i screamed out in pain and shock. and screamed "no!" some more and scurried up the street. the dog's owner came out and called the dog in back behind the fence (where he should be!) while i ran to put janie inside and wash the wound.
long story short: doctor's office, animal control, antibiotics, a dog owner who doesn't speak english, doctor's bills.
but i think i'm fine. a little traumatized, but generally fine.
the question is: who remembers when i got my last tetnus shot? 1994 or 2002?
