“So that being said … tonight, everything changed. So much that I might return to Papa J’s sans coupon (1 per customer per quarter) for some pizza. Tonight our server Peter did something so awesome that I’ll just never forget it – at the end of our meal, he said “I read your blog. I love it.” Both of our jaws dropped and he went on “I recognized both of you when you came in, but I didn’t want to say anything and embarrass you.”
He didn’t want to embarrass me! He didn’t have to worry about that because I took care of it for him when I kicked over the bag carrying the extra salad and realized the pocket of my new too-big-for-me jeans was caught on my seat as I tried to stand up to talk with him. So I’m sort of slouched in my seat trying to unhook my pants while flailing around with my leg to lasso the wayward styrofoam container (no leakage!) and smiling at the first person to not want to embarrass me.
I was a little overcome and unsure what to say beyond ‘Thank you, I am glad you like it.”
Should I have asked him to become Facebook friends? Should I cyber spy to find Peter of Papa J’s and tag him on my post? What do cool people do in situations like this?”

I highly recommend this as a holiday gift for the pets and their people in your life. It is a very reasonable price for a nice gift that will bring year round comfurrt. And being designed by a pet massage therapist, the wraps are amazingly well contured to the bodies of pets. She is very familiar with their unique physiology, the value of heat/ice and their tendency to wriggle. Her seamstress consultant handled those technical angles, together being a great team to design an item that is really a good fit.
