I was just boiling water to steam some broccoli when the phone rang. It was Marvin. "I'm going to Sonic. You want anything?"
Sonic! Oh! Oh, my beautiful Sonic. My beautiful wickedness. "No," I said, "I'm making my eDiets dinner."
"Yeah," said Marvin, "I figured you'd be on your eDiet."
"Get me a footlong chili cheese dog, and don't forget the mustard and onion. And a cranberry limeaid."
Oh, what do you want from me? Sonic is my shangri-la. And did I mention I lost two pounds last week from my eDiet? That was my total weight loss goal. Two pounds.
Okay FINE. Shut up.
Also too, for those of you who watched Tallulah's dog day care on the webcam, you may remember the doggie who was always there in a wheelchair, Oscar. Yesterday when I walked in, Oscar's owners were there. Oscar died on Sunday, very peacefully, in his backyard. He was 15. The owners had come to tell day care–because Oscar was there almost every day–and to thank day care for all they did, getting that dog in and out of his little wheels all day.
As soon as Oscar's people told me, I burst into tears, which of course made them cry, and then it made Tallulah pee on the floor. It was a good time over there at dog day care. An arid moment, at any rate.
So that's my happy news. Oh, and if you clicked on the dog day care webcam just now, you may notice that they updated it and now you can't get on. At least that's what happens to me from my computer. Annoying.
Why do things have to improve?
I guess that's all I have to tell you today, except that if I hear one more word about those Gosling idiots or whoever they are, with the eight kids, I am going to shove wasps up my nethers. Which will accomplish nothing, but it was the worst thing I could think of.
Oh! And one more thing. Did anyone notice that Hulk never told us how big his TV was yesterday. Hulk! Are you one of those huge-TV people, or not?
