(I KNEW I shouldn't have given them each other's email addresses)
They agreed, only on the condition that the posts would feature their trials/tribulations/adventures as my CPs (which is, of course, HEAVY on the Shannon Shame) and I had to post whatever they wrote--no matter what. No changing a word.
So what you are about to witness folks is an act of sheer desperation. The fact that I've agreed to post this should show you just how hectic my life is right now--AND how much I love you guys and don't want to neglect you. Because it is madness I tell you. SHEER MADNESS.
Today's Guest Post is by Sara minus the 'h' who will henceforth be known as The Evil Genius:

Heh. More like CP secrets REVEALED!
Dun Dun Dunnnnn
When I found out Sarah and I were both guest posting this week—and that we had permission to write about the Adventures of Being Shannon’s CPs—I was stoked! There were so many fun directions I could have taken this, but one thing was certain: Shannon Shame was gonna be served in heaping helpings! (oops, sorry Shannon—that’s what happens when you give me free rein…)
So, I thought I’d give this a whirl acrostic poem style!
is for the Silly outfits I get to hear about! The other week she was revising in stretch pants and her husband’s He-Man T-shirt. (Bet she’s wishing she hadn’t shared that with me, hehe)
is for Happy Meals! Because, sometimes Shannon needs reminders to eat. Seriously—I even yelled at her the other day until her husband got on IM to tell me he was heading out to get her a Happy Meal!
is for ANOTHER version of *this* chapter. For instance, I have approximately four emails in my “Shannon” folder with subjects reading “Use THIS version of chapter 13”. (Okay fine. I do the SAME thing. So perhaps we’re soul CPs…)
is for Nightmares. Because as Shannon’s CP, I have them. Holy mama jama, you should SEE some of the things she researches for her book. For instance, what am I supposed to do when she warns me never to look up Camel Spiders? Clearly, google them, right? WRONG. But what would YOU do if I say—don’t click this link! It will show you what a camel spider is and they are SCARY? Yep, you clicked it—or at least wanted to, didn’t you?
is for the “Oh Noes” Shannon’s about to be saying. You know, like right now when I dare her to create a vlog to reveal the PJ nickname I mentioned above AND sing the special song she sings when putting them on every night! Oh, and all while wearing her stretch pants and her husband’s He-Man T-shirt!!! (Dear Shannon, I know you quit the other blog wars because you were so immersed in this round of revisions, so I understand! But this dare is for when you’ve FINISHED this round of revisions. And I’m not really starting a blog war with you, because: )
is for No dare-backs. That’s right. I did it. I just dared Shannon to do something on HER OWN BLOG. And declared no dare-backs at the same time. #SaraisanEvilGenius

*stalls to search for a better loophole*
