So if you’ve seen me on FB you know my friend’s son is dog sitting for a woman who breeds French Bulldogs. These are two of the puppies:
I want one! Or two! But both are sold, so I’m out of luck. Plus, Wizard is mean…like really mean. He keeps saying no, or trying to say no but when he looks at these pictures, he can’t help but smile. So I’m cooking dinner the other night, and I said:
“Wizard, what if I have a contest on FB to name our new puppy. Wouldn’t that be cool?”
He jerked his head up from reading the paper (he reads an actual newspaper-remember those?) “No way. We’re not letting other people name our dog.”
I started talking fast before he realized he’d fallen into my trap. “We could just have a contest for suggestions. I’ll pick a winner, but we don’t have to use it. Or it could be the dog’s middle name.”
He shook his head. “No. They’ll name the dog something weird. We should name out own…wait.” He frowned all serious like. “We’re not getting a dog.”
“Too late, you just said–”
“Nope. that won’t hold up in court. You used your witch-tricks.”
Laughing now because he was so put out that he’d fallen for it, I said, “Go ahead, tell the judge that I used witch tricks on you. I dare you.”
“Doesn’t matter the puppies are already sold. This conversation is moot.”
Dang. But I’m not giving up. These puppies are now the screen savers on the computers in our house. Eventually there will be more puppies that will need a home Bwhahaha!!! Although in all seriousness, we probably do better with an older dog. But it’s fun to torture Wizard!
Okay in other news, I wanted to let you know that Books-n-Kisses is featuring Writers Tips and Tricks all month. That link should take you there. Mine will be up on September 23rd I think. I put a reminder on my phone so I can tell you guys and give you the direct link.
I don’t have any big plans for the weekend. I’m working to get back into the Wing Slayer world (also I need to update my website about the Wing Slayers), plus I need to clean and do some planning for a small party in a few weeks. Oh and my niece’s wedding is coming up in two weeks.
What are your plans for the weekend?
