I’m on it.
But I’m here to give you some real advice that you can take to the blog bank.
You need to get a dog.
And you need to name him some derivative of Charles.
Don’t believe me?
I present my evidence.
Finslippy has Charlie.
The Pioneer Woman has Charlie.
and a book. And an empire.
Dooce has Chuck. And some other dog, but CHUCK!
Dooce has a book. An please don’t make me list everything else that Dooce has.
Moving right along.
Marinka has Nicki.
Marinka does not have a book. Although no need to feel sorry for Marinka, because today Marinka discovered that she has this:
What? Oh, that’s just a little cup that Young Ladrinka made a few years ago and now uses as a receptacle for his chewed gum because walking fifty feet from his room to the nearest garbage can is just too much.
Although to be fair, Marinka doesn’t have it, her son does. But maybe he’ll let Marinka borrow it?
