I was at the kitchen window, washing up a couple of coffee mugs for this morning’s ‘go juice’ when I saw the strangest van pull up to the intersection below… It was bright purple, long and roomy with a full colour photo graphic applied to the rear quarter of a lovely dog amongst flowers. The company was Eskamara’s Sled Dogs.
I have two problems with this.
A.) Y’all don’t have snow here in the Southern chunk o’ England.
B.) Is there really such a demand for sled dogs anyway to warrant large commercial vans with expensive graphics? It’s not like you’re going to drum up business driving through Berkshire, right?
I walked to the living room to tell Neil about it, telling him points A & B, when he responded, “No but we do have sleds with wheels. That’s how they train.”
You can imagine the look of confusion on my face when he stated those responses with a matter-of-fact tone. All the while, my brain blinked “TILT” like a pinball machine.
I think I’ll go get that coffee now… (I’m gonna Google for sled dogs later. Maybe I’ll check rates too… 😉 )
