Make Do – Conversations with the Pack

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, I have a complaint.

Sweetie: Stand in line! Lady Human, something is wrong. It is oh so cold IN THE HOUSE!

Doodlebug: Exactly! I know you humans do not manage the temperature outside very well, but at least inside it’s sometimes tolerable.

Me: Well, we’ve experienced something called an Arctic bomb cyclone.

Sweetie: I don’t care what it’s called. I call it stupid. Make it stop!

MoonCat: Meow!

Doodlebug: See! Even the cat says so and she never agrees with us on anything.

Me: The problem is that our central heating unit is not working right…

Sweetie: How come?

Me: I don’t know, but for the time being, we have our room heaters and we will make do.

Doodlebug: Make do? What is that? Yet another kind of human failure?

Me: Actually, it means we will get through this all right as uncomfortable as it may be for the short term.

Sweetie: Yep. Human failure.

Me: Hey, y’all did all right last night. You had your blankets and the little heater and I heard snoring all night long…

MoonCat: Meow. Make do.

Doodlebug: Bulldogs rule. We don’t “make do”. That’s for cats and humans.
