Me: Ah! It feels good to sit down and take my shoes off! Riley: <sits at attention, looking me in the eye> Hello sir Me: Hmm… very formal
<Riley rests a paw on my knee>
Riley: Sir it’s been a long and quiet day and even though I’ve been bored I was a good girl and didn’t get into anything I shouldn’t or even eat one of those tasty morsels I love so well. Me: And by tasty morself you mean… a book, don’t you? Riley: Mmmmmmm book… Me: Riley, did you eat a book? Riley: I love you
Riley: <zooms past couch, bone in mouth, disappears>
Riley: <zooms past couch, bone in mouth, disappears> Me: I’ve been the victim of a puppy drive-by. You’re not tempting me with the bone… Riley: <zooms past couch, bone in mouth, disappears> Me: Give me that bone!
Me: Today was made for you Riley! Riley: <Leap> <Leap> I don’t understand? Me: Today is Leap Day – it only happens every four years Riley: Wrong! EVERY day is leap day <Leap>
Today is Leap Day. Every four years, we get an extra day on the calendar. How boring and unexciting is that? So many people today are going to experience the humdrum of life (while forgetting the great things that come along with the things we do):
Me: Riley, where did you get that treat? Riley: I’m stockpiling for the winter. Me: Why are you eating it now? Riley: … Me: And why are you now throwing into the air instead of eating it? Riley: I got bored.
