prime time rerun

I guess I've got writer's block. I'm not a writer by trade though, much to my chagrin. So is it kosher for me to claim blockage? I suppose it's more aptly named blog blockage. I don't know, I just haven't come across an idea that moves me enough to flesh it out in the last few days. I just wrote a 3 page diatribe about the tv shows I am currently watching, but you'll be happy to know that I 86'd that bullshit. It was too boring to even proofread.

Distracted by my plight, I started paging through the blog, revisiting random moments in the lives of Me, Beth and Ellie (there's no way to make that grammatically correct without sounding like an ass).   I thought I'd look and see what I had posted on this date during our first year, fresh out of the gate and overflowing with blog fodder. I loved both of the posts I put up that week, but one had a really bad title. This one, though? Perfection. If I do say so myself. Please enjoy a rerun, and be thankful that it's not a tv show review :

Is there a Doctor in the house?

I couldn't help but notice that there was something odd about this suitcase....

It almost looked like someone was trying to claw their way out of it.

But wait...

Oh hello there! Were you resting in that outside zipper pocket?

Girlfriend, what happened to your forehead?

Oh dear.

And look at your poor doggie, up there on the bed

His sutures are harder to see, but I count at least nine, right there in the abdomen.

How will you keep him from chewing and scratching at them?


Could all of this misfortune have been inspired by actual events?

We might have another surgeon in the family after all, Dad!


Me, You, or Ellie said...

Aw-ah. That's so adorable but I really think your surgeon should stick with veterinary medicine instead of plastic surgery, because that little dolly-girl is going to have one hell of a bad-ass forehead scar.....

And the cone? Just perfect.

"Uncle Bill, it is a cone! It is!"


Me, You, or Ellie said...

HA! That is an oldie but goodie!

You're girl cracks me right up.

And I can totally relate to blog blockage -- as you well know, problem is, I just post the too-boring-to-even-proofread shit. There's a lesson in here isn't there?


Me, You, or Ellie said...

See, no proofreading... YOUR girl cracks me right up.
