It does take two to rumble, and, quite often, it’s with your wife. Scrabble, Monopoly, the Game of Life; they mean nothing compared to TV and Mother’s Day. We have no children so I have had a heck of a time trying to get our dogs and cats to write a Mother’s Day card for her. They can eat tennis balls, which I can’t and never wish to do, but they are incapable of using the pen and paper I toss them. I even provide the card. All they have to do is write down the address, including area code, and, with their paws, give a signature……..Am I asking too much? I think not. The dogs and cats look at me as if I am insane.
I had their nails cut today, cleaned that gooey stuff out of their eyes, explained basic English skills, and even let them know that it’s ok to make an error……unless they’re playing third base or centerfield, or miss Mother’s Day.
