Cabal and Other Irresponsible Invocations of The Muse

WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!

For any humans who might be reading this, that’s canine for “Uncle Mike – he’s my godfather – is putting together a book of short stories called Cabal and Other Irresponsible Invocations of The Muse and one of the stories is very important to me personally. You see, it’s about a fellow named Maxtla Colhua and…. Yeah, that Maxtla Colhua, the one I’m named after. So if you can help out and encourage your humans to help get the book into print, I’d really appreciate it.

“Uncle Mike” of course is better known as Michael Jan Friedman. This will be his 76th book and this is the sixth time he’s launched a book via KickStarter.

Have I told you how much I love you Dad? I’m your best friend, but this is way more than that, any dog will come meet you at the door, but this is more. I want to do my part to make sure you only have the best things possible. You’ve already got Mom, so good on you! But I can help with other things.

Like that sandwich you’re making. Before you eat it, you should let me do a quick taste test to make sure it’s good enough for you to eat.

This expression is sometimes followed by another one which means, “I couldn’t let you eat a sandwich which already had a bite out of it!”
