It’s been a slow one today and that has afforded me with time to look at a crossword puzzle. It took me a while to figure out the answer to the clue “bath spots,” which turned out to be “tub.” All I could think about was how there’s not much point in taking a bath if one comes out of it with spots.

As promised, I will now tell you about “The Hypocrite.” It’s a veggie dog covered in chili sauce. It’s designed to serve as a bridge to recovery for my vegetarian friends. It costs 25 cents less than our regular veggie dog. Why? Because I’m here to help.
