At the dog park there’s a dog who shows up sometimes named Cupcake. I was talking to another woman there and she was talking about Cupcake, and I pictured a teacup poodle or other frou-frou dog. Then I met Cupcake. Cupcake is a gigantic Rottweiler.


One of my cousins named her cat Cinderella. Turns out Cinderella was a boy. So he became Cinderfella.
