Guest writer

Little Dog seems to have been bitten by the literary bug.  Long a fan of reading, or at least being read to, he has recently branched out into writing.  Or at least dictating.  At school, one of his teachers has taken to writing down his stories as he tells them.  Most recently he came home with one of his stories printed out complete with the completely unrelated, yet highly decorative pictures he used to gussy it up.

I've decided to share his latest fine story with you because I enjoyed it so thoroughly.

A Pig Jumped on the Princess's Head
by Little Dog
Once upon a time, there was a princess and she knew how to do a flip and she could hop on one foot.  She just standed on her hands then she jumped over a very, very, very high wall and she landed on her feet.  Then she crossed a bridge and a pig just jumped on her head!

See!  Amazing.  If you don't see the pure creative spirit flowing from my child, you clearly didn't read what is written above.  Go ahead, read it again.  This time with feeling.

It took the “with feeling” to make it work for me, but it Did and that’s what truly matters. He’s well on his way to the Hemingway Prize, awarded in Key West every year to the bearded one who holds his liquor best.
