“Lucy, you need to go outside and pee.”
“No, I don’t. I don’t walk on wet grass.”
“Lucy, it’s just rain. It isn’t acid or poison; it can’t hurt you.”
“Nope, not gonna happen. I’m staying under this pillow. I’m a mole.”
“You are not a mole. You’re a Chiweenie.”
“I’m a badger- very dangerous.”
“Come on, I’ll carry you out.”
They go out, Kathleen carries Lucy, who then high-steps it back inside saying, “Icky, bleck, yuck.”
Later that same day…
Act One, Scene Two, same events but as soon as they get back inside Lucy goes tearing outside to run along the back fence barking furiously with Estelle at the neighbors’ visiting kids’ dogs.
“Lucy, what happened to the rain phobia?”
“That’s different. I was backing up my BFF.”
“Come on, Girls, let’s go for a walk.”
(Lucy) “Nope, don’t wanna. Wet grass.”
“Lucy, you need a walk, Estelle needs a walk, I need a walk. All God’s children need a walk.”
“What if we stay on the sidewalk?”
Then, during the walk the girls see deer and a seriously huge buck, whereupon Lucy goes nuts saying,
“Let me at ‘em. I'm gonna get that big one. I can take him! We’ll eat him for Thanksgiving.”
“No ma’am, I will not let you at him, he is huge. He has antlers. We aren’t even going near him and besides, your Mom is a vegetarian.”
We enjoy our stubborn Lucy very much.

BOL, BOL - I'm going to have to try some of her saying the next time it rains.
I don't like going on in the wet grass either...
