barking dog

She had a little brown dog named Mocha. It’s not correct to say that it barked a lot. It didn’t not bark. Never, in my presence anyway, did the dog not bark. Its bark was neither melodious or cute. It was a grating, nails on the chalkboard kind of bark. Like someone was taking a cheese grater to your brain.

I tried to put up with it for the sake of this beautiful woman that I really liked. It proved hopeless. I made it 37 minutes into our third date when I couldn’t take it anymore and left. Mocha won.
