And the winner is (dramatic pause...) Lilac!
My daughter carefully considered all the names suggested (thanks!) and did some very scientific experiments which involved calling her to see which one she responded to best. Okay then, Lilac it is!
She's doing great! She's starting to get the idea that she'll get a little chicken-flavored dog treat if she goes to the bathroom outside, instead of on the rug by the stairs, so that's progress.
I am very, very lucky. Many good things have happened in my life, but the best is that I get to share it with the most beautiful, kind, patient and centered person I know. Lisa and I married 15 years ago today, and somehow she is even prettier now than she was back then! Yeah, I got the good end of this deal, I know!
I love people. I guess you could say I'm a "people person." But I really don't want to talk to any people in the bathroom at work. Not about work, not about kids or pets or anything. Here's the maximum length for any work-bathroom conversation, and this is for somebody I know well:
"How you doin?"
That's it. I've even found an out-of-the way restroom in another part of the building that I've been using sometimes to avoid the restroom chit-chat. I won't tell you where it is, because then my secret will be out.
