As teenagers many of us did not follow our parents rules and sneaking out was one of the ways we could be with our friends who were doing the same thing. I would always get caught as nosey neighbors told on me without hesitation. It doesn’t appear to be as popular now. However, my daughter has two dogs who believe in sneaking out. The female, Bonnie, has managed to push back the locked gate to the driveway on many occasions. She thinks she should take herself for a walk. She even entices Beau to do the work and then follow her. Before Jessie, the third dog was put in a fenced area, he would disappear as well. So, if I do not put a cement block by the wheel to the large gate, Bonnie finds a way to get Beau to help her to slip out. Today, she came up with a new plan. There is fencing all around the property but it is the wire type. I watched her pacing back and forth on the right side. I told her no but as soon as I wasn’t looking, she convinced Beau to help her and the two of them took off. When I walked out to collect an Amazon package I realized they had disappeared. I whistled and they did return. A little while later because I had forgot the cement block they disappeared again. They did come home. I am trying to end their sneaking out days. Also today, a second story about sneaking out. While my stepson was in high school in Texas, he had a Suzuki Motorcycle. He rode it to school everyday. Without realizing it, he told me he often would quietly slip out to see a girl. I actually thought it was funny. There are times when we are at a function whether business, social or family that it becomes dull or boring. We all try to quietly sneak out without being noticed. It is easier because the chances are no one will notice unless it is a small gathering. What are your thoughts on sneaking out?
