Wednesday, Lucy and Chia got the entire post. Today is my turn. I know at first I was pretty mean to Chia, but you’ve gotta understand, I had to teach her some boundaries and make sure she understands who is in charge. Lately, it’s been said around the house that Chia has brought out the puppy in me again. Well, I guess it’s possible to be a four-year-old puppy, right? However, I am secretly practicing pretend submission in case I ever need it, as well as honing up on my Warrior Schnauzer Princess skills.
Chia: OK, so here’s how we’re gonna play…
Riley: Hmm, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Xena: Bwahahahaha. So you think that you can set down the rules? Bwahahahahahaha.
Xena: That’s right, head over my shoulder, then step to the side. Be sure to cross your legs. This is how you dance.
Chia: I don’t wanna dance. I wanna wrestle! Gotcha! Now I’m gonna flip you on your back.
Xena: *thinking* That’s it. I’m playing dead.
Chia: OMD! Did I kill her? C’mon XeXe, wake up! Please don’t be dead.
Xena: I’m not dead, you fool. But come any closer and I might hurt you.
Chia: Can we play again?
Xena: Sure, let’s play “dance”.
And on it went. For an hour. Or maybe 87 minutes.
