Co-Dependency Puppy

Posted on Dec 19, 2007. 4 comments


Maya received the Fishy Proud Co-Dependency Puppy(TM) for her birthday last week. It bellows things loudly at random times, such as "Please touch my nose and give me a hug 'cause I'm all you got," "Is that really the way you were taught to give hugs?" I swear I heard Co-Dependency Puppy say "Are you sure you want to eat that cookie? Maybe you should go to the gym instead." A short time later CDP went to sleep with the fishes. I found the off volume switch (conveniently located behind the velcro closure on the top right of the battery box) and peace was restored to my household. And the ridiculous price listed in the link is actually what harried parents are paying people to take Co-Dependency Puppy and give him some serious Co-Dependency Anonymous Kicks to the head, with which he'd reply "Is that the best you can kick, wussy? Can we be friends?" Reprogramming.
I kid, I kid. Just like the Kids Club Clowns I tolerate toys if my child likes them. I also tolerate these devilish, addicting cookies called "Chocolate Susans." I don't know who invented the Chocolate Susan cookies, but who ever you are May Every Day of it Be Wet for Ye, ye postpartum healthy organic vegetable eating sabotager.
I have been knitting, randomly (probably because of the ill effects of cookie induced mania) (Also if you are my Husband I don't know where the Chocolate Susan cookies are and I don't know how they got into the house, and I would never hide the evidence in 1000 count tampax boxes from Costco). I knit obsessively on one project for about three days before I flit off to the next, none of which are the two measly knit presents I'm giving for Christmas. In reality Lene captured my predicament just perfectly, and since I'm in no way to type anymore because my blood sugar is crashing to compensate for all the damn cookies, I'll just let you go have a look at what she said. Ho Ho Ho, pass the cookies.

    I’m w/Andria. But a silenced CDP sounds cute.

    Hearing about Co-Dependency Puppy makes me happy that I skipped him and went to the Hug & Learn Baby Tad instead. I haven’t heard any complaints about the frog yet.
    Hint from my dad – when Maya learns that it needs batteries in it to work (and knows what the weight should be), flip one of the batteries around. Voila! Same weight but no noise.

    See, if I had a kid, that kid would never know toys made noise, because there would never be batteries in the toy to make noise. But then again, my kid would never know there was Disneyland, or The Wiggles, or anything else that annoys the crap out of me. So I guess it’s best that I don’t have any kids. Just a cat. (no really, that’s not sad.)

    You need milk. or Valium. or both.
    Remember, cookies hide well in old Triscuit cracker boxes, too.
