Life is UNFAIR
The Great Dismal Swamp is on fire. I don't want to point paws, or anything, but this fire was caused by lightening and it is burning up more than a a thousand acres of land. Never mind how expensive it is to put out a fire like this. Never mind how all neighboring fire departments are working in shifts around the clock to stop it from spreading any farther. Never mind how many swamp dwellers have been displaced. Never mind all of that. What I mind is that because the smoke is thick out there, momma will not let us out to play. Something about air quality.
It smells. it is nasty and I need a big giant wind machine to blow that nasty smoke back to where it came from. So... we are stuck inside.
Drat, double drat...
