Just Finished Doing
Playing Steal-the-Bone with my dogs.
I get down on all 4’s, creeping slowly toward one of their bones. They freeze, watch me surreptitiously from the corners of their eyes. The closer I get, the more their tails whip – but they stay frozen in place. When I’m just nano-inches from the bone, they jump suddenly and charge me, knocking me over, suffocating me with dog-macho bravado. When I’m down & out in a begging, giggling heap on the floor, they run for the bone like maniacs. Whichever one of them gets it first has to play-fight the others away.
Was Listening To
Flannel shorts with neon fire-breathing dragons on them
(the dragons did not help me; MegaD kicked their fire-breathing asses!)
A cut-up sweatshirt
Plush, purple squishy socks w/ skid-proof bottoms
Hot chocolate w/ tiny, toasted rainbow marshmallows melted on top,
drizzled with chocolate syrup
(Yeah, dogs and chocolate…what could be better?)
What’s your Blaque List?
