It rarely takes more than a page to recognize that you're in the presence of someone who can write, but it only takes a sentence to know you're dealing with someone who can't.

In a kind of self-delusional stab at "healthy" eating, I buy the kind of peanut butter where the oil floats on top and you have to mix it all up before you smear it on your organic, 27-grain bread. It comes in a plastic jar.

Two minutes ago, Henry the Dog came into my office belching audibly and ... uh ... aromatically. There was the distinct perfume of peanuts in the air.

Ack. I just returned from the back yard. It seems that he managed to reach up onto the counter and snatch the plastic jar, take it outside, chew it open, and lick out what he could get to. This being the aforementioned separate-layers type of peanut butter, it seems that he just ate about 1/2 cup of pure peanut oil, along with whatever actual peanut butter he could get at with his tongue. Ew.

No dinner for that dog tonight, methinks.
