the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Strong as he can be

GEORGE! has been staying with us for the past two days as he needed a break from The Oppressive Provo Environment, and I needed the company. For all you doubters and hatahs out there, you should know that GEORGE! is indeed quite awesome. Do you want to know just how awesome he is? DO YOU?

GEORGE! is so awesome that he went to the grocery store with me and Leta and he helped me put two heavy bags of snow melter into the cart and then into the back of the truck. I didn’t even have to ask him, HE JUST DID IT. And then, then, people, this is just going to reach into your heart and crush it: when we were at home I left Leta sitting on the living room floor so that I could go to the bathroom, and when I returned GEORGE! was sitting on the living room floor with Leta in his lap. And they were playing together.

If that doesn’t scream AWESOME to you, well then, you are just dead inside.
