This weekend Hubster, Lola, and I hosted our first barbecue of the season for our friends. It rained. It rained a lot. Needless to say, Hubster stood in the rain wielding a spatula and I cheered him on from the window while chatting with friends.
I never thought I would live to see the day that toilet paper brought about the end of our society, but that day is indeed here.
For years I’ve been enjoying the antics of Lola. When I got her as a wee baby in 2011, she was a sleepy-eyed, soft-snoring cuddle bug. Fast forward two months…
The warm weather is coming!
The statement above was not shouted with joyous relief that winter has finally released its hold on our lives. Instead, I am crying and rocking slowly back and forth while I remind myself that this too shall pass.
I recently went to Subway for a delightful sandwich. For those unfamiliar with this establishment, they make custom sandwiches while you stand in front of them looking both perplexed and overjoyed at the sheer number of choices in front of you.
Today’s parts will be played by Lola, a cheeky English bulldog, and Heather, a blogger who eats too much Taco Bell and takes frequent day naps. There is also a small cameo by Hubster, the almost silent partner in this family.
Every once in a while, you encounter a fellow human who leaves you scratching your head in disbelief – often while muttering to yourself about terrible childhoods and unhappy adults. This is one of those tales, told through the lens of Hubster, a man of patience who rarely feels the need to moan about his fellow humans.
Friends and family posting food photos, pictures of pets, a few political rants, maybe even a video of a panda sliding down a bamboo shoot. I’d like to pay you all back in kind, but it just never seems to work out that way.
I partied hard this week, which was a wild departure from my normal couch potato lifestyle. I had to leave my house three days in a row and I can tell you that it was as weird for me as it was for those who had to interact with me.
It is my dream to one day make the journey to the United Kingdom and explore everything I’ve only seen on television. Since most of what I know has been gleaned from 18th century romance settings and the Sherlock Holmes television series, I thought it was time that I learn the basics of today’s UK society, starting with their simplest love.
