Marvin gets up two hours before I do. Tallulah stays right in bed with me, with her head on my neck, as she is not a morning person. Edsel, however, bounds right up and begins following Marvin like he's interesting.
Now, Marvin does let him out right away, but the thing is, he does not go out WITH Edsel ("Too cold," says Marvin) and I have the feeling that Edsel often sniffs around and plays and does not, you know, lay some cable or whatever. The REASON I have this feeling, and call me Angela Lansbury, is because I get up and find a lovely log in the back room many mornings.
Marvin and I have discussed this ad nauseum. We have placed a picturesque and trendy orange tarp on the place Edsel goes back there. You'll find this look in the latest designer magazines. It's quite welcoming.
This morning I heard Marvin go into the bathroom and Edsel clicking and making puppy noises. "He's wandering around," I warned Marvin.
"You can clean it when you get up," he said, shutting the door.
Marvin's funeral is on Saturday. His body has been donated to science, as they wanted to examine his gall. Also, I have already been found not guilty by a jury of other puppy owners.
Which leads me to today's Pieces of Wisdom topic. Let's say you could, you know, Do It with any five celebrities who were not your Internet microcelebrity husband who may or may not be annoying. Who would they be?
This idea originated with the show Friends, because they all discussed once which celebrities they'd sleep with and then in real life they all of course went out and did so. This will probably not happen to any of us.
Send me your list of five, and tomorrow I will list the most interesting or the ones I see the most often. For example, I know I will hear so many, "I just have to have that Sebastian Cabot." Also, you all know Faithful Reader Siren likes for me to show the erase board on Wednesday, so could someone say they want to sleep with the erase board?
Without further ado, because I just DID my hair, here are my five:
Okay, give me yours.
