Beggars Choosing Beggars

My husband and I are dog lovers but we didn’t have any when we first had kids. Then our children started asking for a dog. My husband admitted he’s enjoyed not dealing with vet bills, poop-scooping, and fleas. Eventually I wore him down, and we spent months researching the right breed. I was unable to go and choose the puppy, so my husband made the final decision. I hate this dog.

Uh-oh. What say ye, Prudie? Also, how many boxes of stuff from our childhood should we keep in someone else’s attic?
