Y'all know all about Dora, so let me tell ya a little somethin' somethin' about Benjamin Franklin. He is gorgeous. Additionally, he is the most genuinely kind person I know. He's spent about the last bajillion years working at Boys and Girls Clubs, then he worked on the Obama campaign for free for six months. After that, he was promoted to Chief Fancy Pants for the Obama campaign and now he is a Big Fancy Campaign Manager for Big Fancy People in Philadelphia.
I don't really care about his fabulous political titles, but he is one of the dearest friends I've ever had and I love him so very much (awwww....). He has come to visit me a few times, but I never get to really sit down and have a beer with him because he has the knack of visiting at my busiest, most stressful times. So this weekend, I'm taking it easy, enjoying my time with my three best friends (Dora, Thomas Jefferson, and Mary Jane, that is), and not fixing one damn sandwich or putting anyone in time out.
Here's to mini-vacations!
