No Really, What Now? by Laura Walcher Okay, so once again, in a week of unrelenting frustrations and challenges, I decided not to strangle Mr. Entitled.  (“Fen” is his “real” name; our smart-aleck black poodle/bichon, who’s grown up to believe himself the emperor, tho’ he doesn’t even pay the mortgage.)
