I had to stop reading Dooce when Heather got pregnant with her second child and so did I but then I miss-carried. I always thought of Leta and Ella as internet sisters and Heather's monthly letters to her were all the things I wish I'd written. On a whim, I decided to hit her website again and was met with the beautiful smiling faces of her children. Leta is starting 5th grade like my Ella and Marlo is a few years older than Jack but the dynamic between she and her older sister is adorable. I scrolled down and down and saw Chuck the dog and the not so new dog Coco, but I didn't see John. I paged through a few pages looking for his smile. Looking for the transcribed banter between the two, I used to love to read and found none. I got worried. Is John ok? So I googled and found that they split last winter. I clicked a few fan blogs and news sights to briefly read about what happened. I have a sense of how it went down and I have concluded, I still can't read Dooce, but I may go ahead and follow John.
