Any resemblance, real or fictional, to actual bloggers, is strictly fictive:

The racket from the football game drowned everything out except for Carl’s loud snore. It would not be wise to wake him and stop the snoring; the tirade it would generate would not be worthwhile. Besides, this is the most sleep he gets. Carl is up all night drinking brandy, writing his blog posts for the next day, calling friends at four in the AM, and then tumbling into bed at six.
Then comes the long interval without a breath. In the kitchen, my girlfriend, a nurse, looks worried, ” has he been to a doctor? I’d wonder if he’s hypoxic with this breathing pattern.”
Reclining in his Lazy Boy lounger, Carl lights up a Camel and calls out, ” Hey Carmen, canya get me ‘nother beer?”
I walk into the living room and suggest that it’s a nice day and an excellent opportunity to perambulate around the garden. “Naw, I gotta check my stats on WordPress and then respond to the comments. Damn, this game is awful…did you see that play?”

    1. I must have forgotten to turn the comments on. It was true in part. I’ve seen litters raised by cats, and litters raised by dogs. H.I.M Xenia and her brother were raised by our Shephard/ Collie Toby. She has some distinctly not cat-like tendencies. Xenia raised our current dog, Sam. We caught Xenia bringing him mice to chase, and we saw him trying to clean himself like a cat. She was disappointed in him as a mouser however, he killed his prey quickly rather than playing with them.


      1. Yes, they often seem to make no sense whatsoever. The thing that annoys me is WP seems to stop our websites being visible to anyone but the Reader as we never show any search site hits.

      2. Ahh yes. the ongoing attempt to separate us from our limited pool of wealth. as you know I’m a carver, I’ve been thinking about online commerce setups recently, and WP with their charge on top of the charge tactics is not high on my list of places to set up an e-commerce shop. I’m thinking of Shopify.
