The perils of loving a white dog

I got a text message

Which caused my throat to nosedive

Into the middle of my stomach

Just as I was about to give a speech

At our biweekly meeting

It said “Did you kiss Grendel this morning?”

And then, “Call me, it’s an emergency.”

So I excused myself and called

I said “I don’t know if I kissed him

Why, what’s up?”

“Did you kiss him on the forehead? Are you wearing red lipstick?”

“Yeah, I usually kiss him a few times, I guess. Yes, I am.”

“Ok, do you think you could switch from red lipstick to pink? Because it really looks like he is bleeding, and I panicked. I was just about to drive him to the veterinarian.
