When people post on Facebook, "I love you to the moon and back," over a picture of their child. Even more obnoxious when it is a toddler grandchild.

Why is this thread so cathartic?

Nor will I Brandon! Out of the bloody question. We'll have no more of this bullshit. Remember, every single person on this forum is on the same path. Some have maneuvered most of the tricky curves (or think they have) and see clear road ahead. Some of us--me most of the time--are frantically gearing down to get through a series of murderous twists and turns that would terrify a Lesser Writer. And that ain't me. I know a Nobel or a Pullet Sir or at least a Governor-General's Medal awaits me--just as soon as these idiots who hand out awards realize the huge error they're making in sending me their stupid Declines. It is just as easy to get yourself into THAT kind of mindset as it is to sit by the path mopping your face. C'mon m'man--grab those bootstraps and yank firmly upward. If you get momentarily off-balance . . . . .that's why we're here.

"Dixie prefers a home with another dog."
"Cletus is accepting applications for his furever home."

I've been struggling to find a dog and the listing language is making me want to throw up. Stop. Please stop. Just tell me about the dog.

Remember when "gag me with a spoon," was popular?

What kind of a doggie are you seeking?
