Let Me See the Red Pumps Again

(sigh) None of these styles are working for me at all. What I’m really looking for is a pair of size 7 maroon slingbacks with neon pink trim, plaid tassels, and little brass buckles in the shape of Susan B. Anthony dollar coins. Are you sure you don’t have that in the back?

Why Puppies Are Better Than Babies

  1. You don’t have to play the “here comes the choo-choo” game at mealtimes.
  2. There’s no need to have your house “puppy-proofed” — when a puppy bonks her head, she just keeps playing.
  3. A puppy will never grow up to be a mad bomber, deranged chainsaw killer, or hedge fund manager.
  4. No three o’clock feedings!

The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar*

This cheerful caterpillar* is a blurry sight to see

Winging in the Rain

Maynard had seen his favorite movie musical so many times that he broke out into a song-and-dance number whenever the sprinkler came on.

You Look Fantastic, Mr. Fox

“Are you getting my left profile? The shadows on my nose aren’t too harsh, are they? Did I do that thing with my tongue? Dang, I bet I did that thing with my tongue. Ooh, I can’t bear to see how this turns out…”

Yee-up, I Remember the Rains of ’42…

Sheriff Slimetrail comes a-runnin’ down the road, must’a been doin’ a mile an hour easy, tellin’ us to get to high ground. So I crawl on top of the grain silo, and Lucille gets on top of the outhouse, and we just wait it out singing old love songs…

Once You Pop, You Can’t Stop

Hello, I’m Rocky, and I’m a popoholic. (group: Hi, Rocky.) For me, it started so innocently, just a small sheet now and then, and I told myself I could keep it under control. When I hit bottom, I was doing three sheets a day, and ordering stuff I didn’t even need just to get the bubble wrap.
