I was recently introduced to the wonderful Hyperbole and a Half blog.
This blog is the work of utter genius. It is so funny, it makes me laugh out loud (real-life LOLling is always good). She writes so wonderfully about little stories from her life, its really heart-warming. And she draws fabulous little cartoon pictures to go along with them. Can you tell how much I like this blog?!
What I love most of all, is her stories about her dogs. So, she has one dog which she thinks is a bit retarded, called The Simple Dog, and another which looks after the Simple Dog, called The Helper Dog.
I now refer to myself as Simple Dog a lot. I so identify with Simple Dog that I feel pleased that someone else in the world thinks like me, even if it is a mentally retarded dog. The picture below, from this post illustrates the point perfectly.
I have a few Helper Dogs in life too, thank goodness. I am very thankful for them Case in point, as we speak, I am sitting around waiting to go on a bus trip to London. I have had to tweet my friend Nancy, who is probably my primary Helper Dog, to check what I have forgotten to pack, even though she is at work and has no idea what I have already packed.
Anyway, I'm off to sit and fret about what I haven't packed. But at least now you know what I mean if I refer to myself as Simple Dog. But mainly, pleeease go and have a look at Hyperbole and a Half, it is really so, so good.
