Stylistic Differences

Yesterday in Seattle I met a fabulous gay guy who told me about a dog he'd owned some years ago. She was a small dog, and considerable overweight but according to him, "She really worked it." He explained that he had attached a cord from his waist band to a skateboard so she could ride along and accompany him on his daily run without having to exert herself.
He was certainly not going to make her exercise if she didn't want to do that!.
He did not, he told me, want to force HIS lifestyle choices on his dog.

Contrast this with a scene later in the casa de logophilia.

After our long day I dropped down onto the bed and reviewed the day in my mind. A loud sigh interupted me. "What?" I asked Mr. Logo.
"You are NOT following procedure! You are suppose to lie down on your right side and scootch over here so I can put my arm around you. THAT is the routine!"
I turned and scootched.

Takes all kinds, hm?

Haha!! ^_^ Love the non-forcing of lyfestyle choices.

Scootching and snuggling is good.

I was never taught how to properly scooch and now I live a life of exile.

Jocelyn said...

Good dog, Logo. Good dog.

Pat, pat.

Gillian @ Indigo Blue said...

Wow Lo. I guess that makes you Mr.Lo's bitch!

Dorky Dad said...

I can't beat Jocelyn's comment, so I won't.

(pat, pat)

Wanna biscuit?

Being at your house is kind of like an episode of '24', isn't it?

Congrats on winning a copy of my book. I should be able to start shipping them in a week or so.

Hiya Logo! :)

Goldennib~ I know, what could I have been thinking??

Lime~ Outlining procedures is his special gift. Doing what I'm told as long I want to do it, is mine.

Candace~ I think maybe he is really a cat person. The snuggling though, that is awesome, yes.

Grunt~ I understand there is remedial training available.

Jocelyn~ Thanks, thanks so much

Blue~ Yeah, and that is why he gets to ride the back of my bike at times. Sauce for the gander, ya know?

Dorky Dad~ Now when you say biscuit, are we discussing English cookies?

Diesel~ Just like 24 but without Keifer and gun fire, and death and...well, actually no, nothing at all like 24 :p

Seamus!! Hi! Good to see you, mwah!
