Every year I make a list of new things I want to try. Some things are exciting, some are scary, some are shockingly mundane. You can read about previous adventures here.
Though I studied literature and linguistics in school, my heart really belongs to Sociology. I’ve been known to buy old Sociology and Anthropology textbooks for bedtime reading – because I’m super cool like that. I love microcosms of culture that are totally outside of my experience. Jargon that I don’t know, clothing I’ve never seen before, methods of measuring awesome that make no sense to me.
You know, like when someone is talking about the bloodline of their $2,000 Corgie bitch who appears to be wearing a sweater.
I just love it. I love seeing people so genuinely excited about something. I love eavesdropping on conversations that are in my native language but are totally indecipherable. And, let’s keep it real, I love animals in sweaters.
So I obviously had to check out the Minneapolis Kennel Club Dog Show. Please note that I’m wearing a thematically appropriate shirt with a tiny Scottie dog on it.
