Poor Dusty Earth Mother

by Shari on August 4, 2011

SPIKE: Poor Dusty Earth Mother.

KATIE: Oh, no! What's wrong with Dusty? She's our favorite blogger.

JOE: This is true. Because she gives voice to the voiceless: the rotund pug.

SPIKE: She's been stuck in the Phoenix airport for three hours on her way to San Diego for BlogHer '11.

KATIE: Oh, that's awful! Why can't one of the bloggers hop in a car and drive to Phoenix to pick her up? The blogging community is very supportive and tight.

SPIKE: Use your head, Katie. The bloggers are networking and drinking highballs and then retiring to their hotel rooms early to apply replenishing facial masks and watch cable.

JOE: This is true. I'm afraid Dusty Earth Mother will have to suffer. Like us, the rotund pugs.

SPIKE: Joe, the only thing you suffer is flatulence.

KATIE: I hope Dusty isn't suffering from flatulence in the Phoenix airport. That would be sad.

SPIKE: I think everyone in the Phoenix airport is suffering from flatulence. Have you seen the dining options?

JOE: What are we talking about?

KATIE: Poor Dusty Earth Mother. She's trapped in a really hot state with weird politics. And gas.

JOE: Tragic.

SPIKE: Let's get Mommy to send her a picture to cheer her up.

KATIE: Good idea. Everyone–smile and say "flatulence!"

KATIE, SPIKE, AND JOE: Flatulence!

Many thanks to my pug pal @katbron for sending me this photograph of Katie, Joe and Spike to cheer me up while I'm delayed in the Phoenix airport. Mwah, Kathy.

I love you for your support of the rotund pug and for your tolerance of their flatulence.

Too funny, Shari! Can I buy you lunch when you get back? I’d love to hear your BlogHer stories! Love the post and the pugs…enjoy the flatulence-free (hopefully) plane ride to CA.

Oh my gosh Shari! I laughed so hard I’m rolling. Katie, Joe and Spike send their love! Pug Hugs;)
