So of course when brother Dutch heard about my New Year's revolution he had to have one too. Brothers are like that.
ME: But you're not hefty. My revolution is about looking like a tube.
DUTCH: Don't they make revolutions for skinny dogs?
ME: Uh, maybe? I don't know.
DUTCH: Hey - what exactly is a revolution, anyway?
Uh, kinda embarrassing, but I had no idea how to answer that. I just knew my revolution would make me less tubular in the new year. So I asked my friend Google about it.
GOOGLE: A revolution?
GOOGLE: Puglet, a revolution is a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, esp. one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence; an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.
ME: Huh what?
Google then explained that maybe I really meant a New Year's resolution, with an S. A resolution is when you decide you're going to do something and then do it. That makes a lot more sense to me than overthrowing a government, or whatever.
Now that I know what a New Year's resolution really is, I have a few of them:
1. Lose some heftiness.
2. Be a better bloggee. How do you all know to come here everyday?? I want to read your blogs too because they are really good, but my gimpy brained human never remembers. Unless someone says, Hey, go read my post from last Wednesday, she forgets to go to them. Any suggestions??
3. Help homeless pugs.
I'm still working on #4. This resolution stuff is so cool, I don't want to stop at #3 (hint: Google says they work better if you write them down). Does anyone else here have resolutions??
