Have you ever had an itch you could not reach? No matter what position you try to get into – the itch is just out of reach – taunting you as you yearn to scratch.
I’ve used furniture, doors, my family – anything to find relief!
This big guy was trying to rub off his winter coat by using a speed sign pole as his back-scratcher. I was not about to leave my car to offer the poor beast relief. He seemed content with his pole.
I’ve had back itches I couldn’t reach, but eventually I found relief. I am grateful to say that I have never had to resort to a speed sign along a highway. What a picture that painted! Traffic slowing down as a middle aged woman, rubs her back against the pole – gyrating up and down – frantic for relief. Would they take pictures?
My best friend gave me a telescoping alligator claw back-scratcher. BEST thing ever. I can pull that baby out when I am in dire need, and end the misery reasonably quickly. I am thinking of getting one for my husband.
Every night it is the same thing. JUST as I get settled and am about asleep, it starts. “Honey, can you scratch my back.” So I roll over and scratch his back as he grunts happily. I guess that’s his way of saying thank you.
Funny how a buffalo scratching his back against a pole inspired this little bit of nonsense. 🙂
