I’m afraid we haven’t been very attentive bloggers this week. We’ve been tagged several times for a great new meme, and it’s only now that we’re getting around to it. We’re really sorry—it’s not that we aren’t interested. To the contrary, we love these challenges, and we’re always so honored when you think to tag us. It’s just been an unusually busy week around here, mostly because of the human graduation at the college where I teach. That’s always a hectic time for us: I have my grading and banquets; Ari has to give a personalized goodbye to every student who has ever patted her head or touched her ears or, in some very special cases, stopped by to give her a good walk when I couldn’t get home in time. This year was particularly busy, since the college decided to give Presidential Candidate and Citizen of the World H.A. Turbofire an honorary degree (yes, dog bloggers, that means he is now Dr. Tubey to you all. We’ll all have to wait to see if he insists upon such formalities).
Hosting a dignitary is always stressful, but when said dignitary demands gilded water dishes, a trail of bacon, and a mile-high stack of toilet paper tubes in his state room, that puts a lot of pressure on us. Don’t get me wrong—it was absolutely worth it (you’ll see soon enough: Professor Turbo agreed to post the transcript of his commencement address on his blog), still, that didn’t leave us a lot of time for meming.
So here we are, late on a Sunday night and hat in hand, begging your indulgence with our very tardy meme, which was first given to us by our good friend Zim over at the Army of Four. The instructions are as follows:
· Write your own six word memoir.
· Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
· Link to the person that tagged you in your post.
· Tag at least five more blogs with links.
· Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
· Have fun.
That was a lot of fun. And we’re aware that this meme has made its way around the canine circuit quite a bit, so we want to send out a very special “tag” to our naturalist friends out there. They’re all amazing photographers, so we know they’ll come up with something extra super special for an illustration.
All our best,
