How to care for A Guy


I’ve recently come into possession of a guy (The Guy). Dear dedicated readers (who-may-all-be-in-my-head-because-I-really-don’t-blog-good), you’ll know that it was a good number of years since I last had to keep one of these. And, they are very much not like keeping cactuses (who now live with my parents thanks to my worst nightmare flatmates) alive. They’re a lot more like puppies: needy, furry and I’ll admit it, kind of cute.

Keeping A Guy is all about not losing them in ten days (check under the couch if misplaced this early). You gotta be cruel to be kind, as Letters to Cleo would tell you. Treat ’em mean to keep ’em keen. Life is like a box of chocolates. I’m just saying words that make no sense now aren’t I?



But really, to keep A Guy the most important thing you’ll need to know is: Don’t feed them after midnight.

Oh, wait, that’s if you don’t want your mogwai to become a gremlin.

Well, actually, they’re kind of like mogwai.

You shouldn’t expose them to sunlight because they may be flameable. Or worse. They may *sparkle*

Never, ever give them water. A Guy survives on beer, coffee and whisky alone.

And definitely, definitely, don’t get them wet.

Or hot.
