Guest Post: Okay, I'll Keep the Baby... For Now

This post will make a lot more sense if you read my letter to the Bloomberg Help Desk dated January 3, 2013. She published it on her weblog, which was embarrassing but now I'm sorta committed, you know?

Anyway, here is the follow-up letter I sent to the Bloomberg Help Desk this past Friday.

Dear Bloomberg Help Desk,

Help. Help.

Even though none of your suggestions for getting rid of a baby were help-ful, I'm writing to tell you I've changed my mind.

First, the little mailman* is learning to play fetch, slowly but surely. He only throws the ball about a foot, but I give him three or four chances before I give up and bring it to our mom. It's a little confusing, because sometimes he just waves the ball in front of my face and squeals, but eventually he lets go of it.

NB: I'm not allowed to rip the ball out of his hand or play tug of war. That is a definite no-no, Bloomberg Help Desk, or so I've learned. I'm a good boy and a good learner.

Second, the little mailman sometimes takes me and the stroller for a walk. I'm not a huge fan of this game, but perhaps with time I will grow acustimed acustomed accustamed used to this method of exercise.

I'm trying to tell her this is not working. With my eyes.

I'm pooped.

Finally, his opposable thumbs make him a potential asset. I could certainly never do this:

The possibilities are endless!

So the little mailman is on probation. I will keep him for now, but I reserve the right to contact you in the future. It's a call option, if you will. LOLOLOLOL I learned bad finance puns from my dad. (Anyway, it's more of a put option, isn't it?)

Good boy. Good learner.

I hope you have a pleasant summer, Bloomberg Help Desk.
