"Begone...before someone drops a house on YOU, too!"
"I'll get you, my pretty....and your little dog, too!"
There is a woman I know, who reminds me of this witch. Her daughter petted my parents' dog, an older dog with arthritis which is painful and makes him cranky, and the dog snapped at her. Bit her arm and scared her quite a bit. I was there when it happened and we were all horrified. No one ever expected this dog to bite anyone, and no one wanted the little girl to be hurt.
So we soothed the girl, bandaged her arm. It was bruised, and punctured, but no blood, thank God. I called the girl's mother, apologized, offered to pay for an trip to the doctor.
This woman has responded by threatening to sue my parents, and has made quite a pest of herself with the County Health Department. Luckily, the dog's shots are up-to-date, and all my parents have to do is quaratine the dog for 2 weeks. She reminds me of Ms. Gulch, the old neighbor lady in the black-and-white portion of the Wizard of Oz. Chasing after retribution from an old, arthritic dog, or the girl's father, my S.O., who she thinks was "negligent", or my parents, who, at their age, don't need to have to put up with any grief from this wicked witch. All because they were hosting my daughter's birthday party and extended the invitation to my boyfriend and my children. I mean, it was awful that Baron's daughter was bit! She is a sweet little girl and I never, ever want her to be hurt. But come on!
If only a bucket of water would work in THIS case......Hmmm....
