Hello. This is The Daily Bone, and I’m your humble doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel, chairman of the Squeaky Party, along with my colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.
Today’s vocabulary word is dichotomy. It means separation or contrast between two sides. If you pay any attention to the political news, you should have noticed that our government is split right now. There are two teams, the Democrats and the Republicans, and they are violently opposed to each others ideas, and are rejecting every attempt to compromise. Failure to come up with a solution to the crisis du jour will send the USA careening into economic disaster and meltdown. But we’ve already discussed these dooms day scenarios in excruciating detail.

In other news, the crazy red cardinal who has been attacking his reflection in the windows of our house, has now been spotted assaulting the rear view mirrors on our cars in the driveway. He’s also bombarding the car doors with poop. Unfortunately, my jurisdiction doesn’t include the driveway and cars. I suggest the humans tie plastic bags around the rear view mirrors until Crazy Bird either gives up, or bashes himself into a coma. Wow, all this anger and energy just to annihilate an imaginary foe! It kind of sounds like our government. In the meantime, I will continue my barking campaign and try to convince him to go away.
|Luckily my guard post is quite comfortable.|
