Violets are Blue

When I was younger, every 6 months my mom would stubbornly purchase a miniature sage bush and place it next to the sink so she would remember to water it. And several weeks later it would be dead, dried out, and sporting cheerios on it’s dead limbs. I don’t know why we did that but I’m sure it had something to do with Salt Lake City and the small amount of kicks you can get when you can’t drive somewhere and have real fun.

The first time Nicole and I went on a run we took Bella with us. Even though Bella was acting cute and cuddly she decided at one point to try and bite to death an innocent runner. Fortunately this was a seasoned runner who hopped over Bella’s bared teeth and didn’t otherwise miss a beat. Bella was very upset that she wasn’t sly enough to get her target but not as upset as I was that Bella is trickier than she first appears.

The Dog, Year In Review By January 4, 2011 Tags: , , , , , , , , No Comments

We adopted a dog. Also, see above for best looking member of our family. I often have trouble getting over how much she looks like my childhood dog, Peepers – I have already given up trying to worry about how much it will cost to put our future kids through enough therapy to get over their parents loving the dog more than them. Oh well, I can’t keep all the good book writing material to myself.
