I know that some animals are very well trained
And that’s nice.
I just realized that my dog is the perfect height
To be a side table to put a drink on next to the bed.
The thing is
She is not trained like that
And my drink would spill.
No,
She is lying on top of the clean laundry
After I specifically told her she shouldn’t.
But she is very smart
And so she knows she is too cute to be in trouble.
I don’t care so much about side tables anyway,
Though they are nice.
I do have a chair problem.
Well,
I used to.
I think I’m better now.
It has been quite a while since I acquired one.
But that’s probably more because I have barely gone anywhere this year.
I do like finding a good old chair
And fixing it up to be an even better chair.
Why?
I don’t know why I’m like this.
Today I tried to imagine the Christmas feeling.
I haven’t felt it yet,
And I’m still waiting.
Some snow would help.
