Trash Tiara

  • Trash: discarded matter; refuse
  • Tiara: An ornamental band worn in a woman’s hair

How I encountered this word:

Taking Sadie for her morning walk today, we came across a pink, bow hair clip abandoned on the sidewalk. I stopped, picked it up and clipped it to the fur on top of her neck as we continued our walk.

I couldn’t help but giggle as Sadie, completely unaware, donned the clip. We passed a popular neighborhood coffee shop and a guy who was sitting at a table outside (and looking as though he may have been a tad drunk from the night before) beckoned Sadie to come over for a little puppy lovin’.

As he began to scratch her neck I said, laughing, “You’ll have to excuse the bow in her fur.”

Guy asked, “What’s that about?”

I responded, “We were walking and I found it on the ground. I picked it up and stuck it on her.”

Guy, turning back to Sadie and scratching the sweet spot behind her ears, said, “Awww, mommy made you wear a trash tiara.”

    Super cute post, BUT…

    (a) The dog lover in me is feeling the pangs of Sadie’s, well, pain. But don’t worry, I’ve been known to dress my Pit Bull in a bumble bee costume, as well as put her in a Snuggie for Dogs. Yeah, you heard me–they actually sell these. They keep her warm in the winter snow/wind. It’s just part of being a proud and caring Mom, in my estimation… 😉

    (b) Some of my obsessive-compulsive tendencies are a bit frazzled after reading about you picking up an object off the street. 🙂

    P.S. Our dogs could be cousins. They look just alike, but my Amy is mostly black, with a little bit of white.
