No. 4: Club Seal


Great. Now I can add two weepy, inconsolable girls and one apparently unshareable seal doll to the list of Things That Are Really Not Helping Me Get Through The Day Before A Long Trip.

I eat as much tofu and wear as many canvas shoes as the next guy, but seriously. With the grief this little National Geographic plush baby harp seal is causing in our house right now, I might just start clubbing it right here and now.


With twins, we used to have this fairly often.

Suggestions (although maybe you have already Taken Measures):

Alternate days for seal possession.
Award seal for good behavior (chuckle).
Seal goes in your room if it's fought over.
Obtain another seal.

My wife advocates the Solomonic approach of cutting it in half.
