McNeil's Theory

The problem with the "blog," contends McNeil, is that I don't live in an apartment anymore. "You don't have any upstairs neighbors with dogs to 'blog' about," McNeil observed in a recent phone conversation. "Yeah, but the other day a lizard got into the house," I replied. "Now I 'blog' about wildlife, like yellow jackets." McNeil claimed that yellow jackets did not count as wildlife. "Well, they're not domesticated," I said. "They don't perform useful chores for man." McNeil was still not convinced. "Huh. Are yellow jackets wildlife? Hey, maybe you could 'blog' about that," he said.
