Too Clever By Half

The following letter was slipped under my bedroom door this afternoon:

Dear Mom,

I want a dog of my very own so I have something to cuddle and snuggle with. I feel lonely since you and dad have a dog. I want a dog because if I got any other animal (except for a cat) dad would eat it. I want the dog to be soft charming cute cuddley and huggable. I want a friend in life because I don't have very many friends. I will be responsable with my dog. I will feed it and potty train it all by myself. I will love that dog and you forever. I want a girl dog that is nice and does not growl bite or hide. I will give it food and water every morning. It will sleep with me and I will try not to kick and be still. I will also protect it so dad does'nt eat it.

Your 8 year old daughter,
Princess

Ahem....

Perhaps we shouldn't have read her my letter yesterday....or shown her how well it worked by sharing pictures.

Oh dear, I think you're sunk. What's good for the goose....?

I'm so sorry your trip had to be canceled! There are times we wonder why the universe is picking on us. Surely Princess' sorrow can be assuaged with a dog! Yours, maybe not so much.

Here's to something really good happening to your family soon!!

I'm a little disturbed by all the fear of Sean eating any pets that might appear... has his thirst for blood deepened since I last saw him?

You could tell her to resubmit her request when she's in 6th grade. Good luck. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes. --Dukkie

Oh, too cute! Hoist by your own petard, and all that. It'll be interesting to see what happens next ;)
