The other day I wrote a column about how my dogs were refusing to eat dog food. And then I started to worry. Hadn't I read a column on this subject recently? So I looked at a lot of blogs, searching for dog-feeding stories, only to come up empty.
Anyhoo. I read the column to my son. And he laughed. And then he said, "But, Mom, this is a lot like the column you did last summer."
So yeah I'M RIPPING OFF MYSELF NOW. Which makes me the ultimate hack. Meanwhile, I tweaked the new column, making it sound like I meant to write about the same thing twice. Clever Me. Clever Scary Profoundly Disturbed Me.
