This Morning’s Conversation on a Walk


JD: Please don’t do this to him…again…
J*: Polo loves this! Trust me!
JD: Jaz, look at his face. I doubt he’s what I’d call Happy.
J*: Polo, you wub dis, don’cha boy? You wub all dis attenchon from me, don’cha boy?
JD: I don’t think he likes when you talk to him in your puppy voice either…
J*: Of course he does! He told me. Last night, in fact! So, there.
JD: It’s official. Our kids are going to hate you.

Polo wubs me werry much…

Many thanks to Courtney Dellafiora for sending Polo this hoodie after attending The Workshop last month…Polo and I juss wub her!

    I was reading this post in a very important class that I should have been paying attention to. Instead, I laughed out loud at a completely inappropriate time. No bueno.
