Thing 1: Oh good. A roost. This seems like the perfect time to write another blog post. Thing 2: Blog post? Wait, we write blog posts? Thing 1: Well, I write them. You sit there and make snide comments. Thing 2: It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it. *Thing 2 turns all sorts of different colors and starts sprouting scales* Thing 2: I can see you typing.

Thing 2: Are we going to talk about our journey back to the ice ages? Thing 1: I’ve still been thawing out. One might have thought our expedition in search of something to review would have warmed the hide, but unfortunately the new Chipotle location in Lehi left much heat to be desired.

Thing 1: Time for another book review! This week the book is Oshenerth by Alan Dean Foster. Thing 2: Where do all these books keep coming from? Thing 1: Authors chained in dark rooms with only the glow of the monitor. Thing 2: This explains why they are all so pale.
