Friday Hot Dog Story

July is National Hot Dog Month! My Etsybloggers carnival entry is about hot dogs!

So what do Friday and hot dogs have to do with each other? Well, my husband has a story from his childhood. He and his best friend, Benny, decided to camp out in the back yard and sleep over night in a tent. They had a a campfire (supervised by Dad) and my husband was looking forward to a roasted hot dog or two for dinner. Benny said, because it was Friday and he happened to be catholic, that he couldn't eat meat until the day was over. So the waiting began. Hours went by and hunger began to loom! My husband could taste the hot dogs and thought he could eat a dozen by the time midnight came! At the stroke of midnight they each roasted a hot dog over the fire - tastiest hot dogs ever! After devouring those first hot dogs, my husband ran back to the tent to grab another hot dog to roast, only to find that his dog Lassie had devoured all the rest of the hot dogs in the package. Boy was he hot with anger! And so a dog created a hot boy. :)

That hot dog tastes best which you waited for most. As long as it doesn't end up going to the dogs, that is! A wonderful story, love the humor. :-)
