How did I read the stars so wrong?
~ “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry
I know that I have some OCD tendencies. It’s cool! For example, right now, I am looking at the lyrics from the song above and I desperately want to change the word “wrong” to “wrongly”. One cannot read something “wrong”. Alas, this is the song that was playing when I began writing, so I cannot go back and change it, no matter how bad(ly) I want to do so. Hopefully this disclosure will justify why I will seem distracted throughout this post. Grrrr for bad grammar! Woe is I . . . or Woe is Me . . . hmmmm!?!?!?!
Elizabeth, the Dog Wonder, is almost 12 years old. We celebrate her birthday in July. She is still quite spry for her age. The other night she caught her first documented rabbit of the season. I am happy I wasn’t around to see the carnage (or hear the attack), because rabbits sound like screaming banshees when being mauled. My understanding of the situation, as it was relayed to me by a first hand observer, is that the rabbit was not only dead; but really, really dead. Pretzel, Ebie’s best friend, had a lucky rabbit’s foot to prove it.
None of this would have any effect on me, except, Elizabeth almost killed me with her bad gas last night. I blame the rabbit. It’s no laughing matter when your dog verbally sighs and groans every time she let’s one rip. Good gourd! I would invite her to go outside; but, even after she did her business the gas wouldn’t stop. It was horrible. At bed time I kindly informed her that her dog bed would be moving to the end of the bed until the situation was under control. Of course, she was none-to-happy about this latest change of venue. I was unrelenting. I had to be. . . I did not want to asphyxiate during the night. When the alarm clock awakened me, Ebie was soundly sleeping in her bed. I listened closely; but, heard no tummy gurgling. This gives me hope that the storm has passed.
In other bedroom news . . . I am 99% sure that I slept 7 consecutive hours last night with no medical assistance. Once in a while I wake up and don’t remember - but, based on my lack of dreams, I am almost sure that my sleep was uninterrupted. I have been working diligently to stabilize my sleep habits. This seems like a positive sign. Woot! Woot!
PERSONAL NOTE: I had so much fun at the zoo! Thank you for going with me.
CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: Brilliance is underrated! Why are you scared to play Word Feud with me?
