Congress’ failure to figure out the budget mess means the hole we’ve been digging for decades isn’t any closer to getting filled in. The mess that has been created by the politicians in Washington reminds me of a recent addition to my household.
Last year my wife had the bright idea to add a second dog to our already crowded house of three kids and a cat. She got me to agree to this by promising to help take care of the dog, including picking up the poop, walking it and taking responsibility for various other things that come with pet ownership.
Since in the previous month she had mentioned something about having another baby, this seemed like a good compromise to help her meet her maternal needs.
I should have known better than to expect her to actually take care of the dog. We’ve had our cat for 14 years, and she hasn’t changed its litter box since she was pregnant with our first child more than eight years ago.
