from the desk of bingley no. 4

Blogger's Note: While I make an effort to generate some serious progress on Book 3, the wonderful Bingley Chapman has agreed to oversee Change the Word. All opinions expressed in these posts are his and his alone. (Except when they're mine, but being portrayed as his.)

Sigh. I don't know what else I can say about this other than people should NOT leave stray ribbon sitting around the house. Because my mom WILL find it, and she WILL think it'd be absolutely adorable to put it on me for a photos shoot.

Mom is also more than a little addicted to her cell phone, selfies and Facebook. And I really don't like it when she drinks a little too much wine and wants to slow dance. (OK, so that only happened once or twice, but it was still embarrassing.)

In all fairness, I'm sure Mom would like it if I stopped licking her ear before dawn every morning (even though I just want to cuddle). I could also probably stop throwing up fur balls all over the house (I get a little excited). And I'm sure she'd be thrilled if I stopped insisting on watching her take baths (I let her watch me take baths).

Have I said "sigh" already?

Point is, we both have to exercise a lot of patience, and we both have opportunities for growing to make this relationship work. At least it keeps things interesting. And in the end, it's worth it for the one you love.

Here's a question for you word fans: What's one habit you'd like to break? What's one you refuse to give up?

  1. Hi Bing! This is Abbie the Cat. (I've learned how to use a keyboard. You're SO right... it's super fun!) My mom likes to take silly pictures of me too, so I can relate. She has so many bad habits it's hard to pick just one. Leaving the house is something she does quite often. She calls it "work," but I'm sure she's just sitting around staring into space. On the flip side, she tends to over-feed me and, let's face it, I hope that never stops. And I meow EXTRA loud in the middle of the night if she dares go to sleep without making sure my bowl is full. My human is pretty cool despite everything she does wrong... yours looks pretty awesome as well. *Kitty High-Five*
