I recently walked the 2015 Seattle Susan G. Komen 3-Day, a 60-mile walk to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. While en route walking the streets of Seattle and Redmond and Bellevue and so on, I happened upon the usual numbers of dogs one is likely to encounter while in an urban and suburban setting, including a decent variety of corgis.
I adore corgis.
I’d see a corgi and exclaim “CORGI CORGI CORGI”, which I admit is kind of strange for an adult male to do, but I guess you’ll just have to write it off to my general eccentricity.
Toward the end of the walk, I happened upon a corgi cheering walkers on along with its humans, but other walkers were already petting said corgi. I waited my turn, got impatient, and said “Hey, man, don’t bogart that corgi.”
The corgi’s owner looked at me and said “You are way too white to say that.” And laughed.
