Mel invited her friend CJ over to have some of the fantastic chocolate cake she’d made for my birthday.

I’m sitting on the couch surfing blogs and they’re at the table chatting.

Mel says to CJ:

So, Lazydog and I are adopting…

This got my attention immediately.

Yeah, she says, we’re going to name the boy Gene Eric and the girl Polly Esther.


CJ practically choked on her cake.
