The Granddaddy...sorry Grandmaster

Welcome readers. I am proud to be the first sheep to introduce the blog to the world. I am very proud of my efforts in recruiting a complete therapy team that has successfully graduated 4 masters students in engineering. Hopefully these numbers will be added to as we have some underlings (is that what you call human children...I get bogged down in all their silly terms) still rising through the ranks. We may even get some higher degrees as a couple of our students can't learn when to say no and continue to further their education.

So what's my story you say...yeah yeah I'll get there, just hold on to your knickers

Well the most important detail of all, I'm number 15 and my complete name is Chris Mac. But you can call me Sheepy. None of the other sheep have graduated sufficiently in their therapy skills to earn a last name. As the narrator suggested the group consists of 1.5 sheep that were adopted through the standard mattress purchase program. Well I have the fortune of being the .5 of a sheep adopted in this manner. You see the homo sapien Chris Mac had a roommate that purchased a Serta mattress and was fortunate enough to adopt me in the process. I learned many wonderful therapy skills living with her, but once she graduated and moved onto the real world she thought she no longer needed me. Little did she know that she would be calling me late at night requesting my help...which of course I always talk her through her problems. (Sorry for those phone bills, I really shouldn't have blamed DJ for them should I have...I still contend that he's responsible for the 900 numbers though)

So my original adopter moves and gives me to her roommate Chris. Chris was getting ready to move as well and decides to have a yard sale. Chris wasn't always one of the brighter ones...he was trying to sell me after all...and planned his yard sale the same weekend as the great move out in their college town. So only one person came to the yard sale and purchased something. That person was Erin and in return for coming and buying, Chris gave her me as a gift.

You see this Erin was in desperate need of my services. In a total of 6 years she earned two bachelors degrees and a masters degree. Oh and talk about a temper...during some our less fruitful initial therapy sessions I often found myself hurled football style across the apartment towards the roommate. My butt still smarts from some of those impacts, but alas I love Erin. Things started to calm down and we were making therapy progress but then she had to travel for some silly research project. Erin left me to be sheep sat by her faithful research companion Justin. I have to eat and Erin was worried that her roommate would retaliate for all the times my butt came flying at her face. It seems that Justin is a little dense though and missed the memo. Instead I was sheep napped and spent a wondrous week with Jamie, who eventually came to join us in our research fun. During this week Jamie and I had a blast and she realized how much she needed a sheep like me. Which was great until Erin came back and I was almost torn into two. It was decided that I wasn't enough sheep for everyone's issues. They had a LOT of problems. This is how my therapy practice developed beyond myself and into its current (well still evolving) final form.

I still happy reside with Erin and the two other sheep in our immediate family. We have many fun adventures together. My favorite has always been flying. I don't know what it is about the experience but something about the wind beneath my wings just gets me soaring. Or maybe it's really getting frisked by the security guards; sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

Once again I thank you for reading our blog. Please comment and enjoy our upcoming entries. Should you be a sheep and reading this, or other therapy animal (we try to be diverse after all), please send us your stories (sheep.4225sc@gmail.com). We will gladly add them to our blog or if you have a blog of your experiences we'll link to you. After all it's all about getting the homo sapiens through life, and we all know its no easy process.

The Loving Grandmaster Sheep,

Chris 'Sheepy' Mac

Well I have to say, buying a fan and board game at a yard sale has never made me happier. Even though the fan has been gone a long time and I don't really like the game. I still have my Sheepy, and not even Jamie is going to change that.

Justin said...

Hmm, Sounds like a challenge. I hear the roaming gnome is looking for a traveling partner

Sheepy said...

O, are you volunteering Taylor? I'm not going anywhere with out Erin. Last time Erin let me stay in the lab with you guys I got stuffed in a smelly backpack.

Justin said...

Well at least you didn't get sealed in a bag during your trip to the boob factory.

I absolutely was not volunteering Taylor. In fact I believe Erin was issuing a challenge to all of us to attempt to steal you. I pulled it off once with the bell. I think I can get you too.

Honestly, wouldn't you rather be out of GA anyways

Erin said...

hmmm....well if you were going to take Chris you would need to come to GA and visit me. So bring it on!

John said...

So Chris Mac... Who is your favorite member of the lab, and do you have any juicy gossip for us? I'm sure you have been in on several interesting conversations over the years.

Sheepy said...

Um...didn't you read when I said "I love Erin"? Anyway I can't tell you anything about the very juicy conversations that happened in the lab. I am a therapist and as such have to keep our sessions confidential.

John said...

Now tell the truth Sheepy, is Erin threatening and/or bribing you in any way when you are posting comments on this blog?

Sheepy said...

Only with love. No Erin is a great person to live with. She takes great care of us and let's us go to great places with her. She defiantly rocks.

Justin said...

Hmm, better luck getting info out of Jesse. There is a chance you can trick that sheep into giving up some information. But you'll have to wait until Jesse appears on the site. Better keep a watchful eye.

We can find out the true nature of things, when Addison comes home after visiting the Erin. Addison will tell us what really happens at that resort. Instead of just what the prisoners say about it. Can never trust what is said when being threatened...like Chris Mac is being by Erin.
