I’ve stolen this title from Dawnriser’s wonderful and deeply personal post. The two posts could not be more different.
One of our household is a self styled Protector in Chief. Birds, planes and neighbouring pets bow to his bark. The postman and the window cleaners know their place in the hierarchy.
There are some threats that remain a challenge. They keep popping up in the corner of the room, on a screen, as if that made them any less troublesome.
Anything that looks like this
will cause uproar, and we’ve learned to grab the remote control in a timely manner.
However, the world is full of surprises. The latest threat to our order? Santa’s Little Helper. A cartoon character. Your guess is as good as mine.
