You might have thought my post title is a little nuts, but it’s exactly what this post includes.
First: Ferrets who are mistaken for dogs. PLEASE tell me you heard about this in the news. It’s about as good as news gets.
Some guy bought not one, but TWO, ferrets and thought they were dogs. The ferrets had been given steroids from birth and their hair was poofed out to resemble poodles. Guys, I can’t make this up. It wasn’t until he took them to the vet that he found of he had been duped.
Next: Sneakers with a dress. I wouldn’t be my classy self without wearing sneakers around DC in my dress for our engagement pictures! I knew that they are the only things that wouldn’t wreck my feet and legs, so I threw other shoes in my bag and just went with it. I am a style expert, of course. Here I am outside the building I worked at a few summers back, the Madison building of the Library of Congress!
Another crazy thing added in for good measure: Have you ever heard of Wim Hof? He is from the Netherlands, and he is known as the Ice Man! He has spent almost two hours fully emerged in ice, which is world record material! The cool thing: he uses a mind over matter technique to get it done. I guess this just goes to show that your mind is a powerful thing!
Here’s a pretty incredible video with a bit about his story. If you ever doubt yourself, watch this! At the end, he holds himself up, yoga style, on the edge of a cliff with one hand. I mean, wow.
And the moment you’re waiting for, I’m sure! The winners of my NuNaturals giveaway! Congrats Jessie, Alysia, Renata, and Lauren!!! Please send your name and address to lifeafterswimming AT gmail DOT com. Thank you!
That’s all the nonsense I have for you today! Serious nonsense.
Have you found anything nuts lately? I mean, once I found a story about a goat going to court, but I think this dog/ferret thing takes the cake.
