I saw this post from Casey, where she wrote as though she were sitting down for coffee with her readers. I thought that would be a perfect way to post today.
If you were to come over, Penny girl would greet you at the door. I’d tell her to stop jumping on you but she would be too excited to shower you with kisses and get all up in your business.
The Christmas tree would be lit, and Christmas scent candles would be making the little house smell like heaven.
As you’d get comfy on the couch, Penny would continue to walk all over your lap, licking your face off. I’d bring you coffee from the kitchen and tell Penny to “go to her place” so she’ll give you some space.
I would sit down, probably on the floor, and set my mug on the coffee table. I’d tell you that I’m a little sad being alone this Thanksgiving. That I’m thankful to be so busy with work, but when I really focus on it, it’s hard to be alone right now. I’d tell you Skyping with my family makes me more sad than happy because it reminds me how much I miss them.
Right around this time, Penny would give up staying in her “place” and bring you her toy, tail wagging, urging you to throw it. You politely oblige and she darts after it, jumping over my lap in the process. She brings it back, sets it next to your lap, and gives you those puppy dog eyes, until you throw it again.
I’d tell you that I struggle with being personal on my blog. And since I’d be feeling comfortable, I’d probably find myself telling you a few other things I have been struggling with lately. I would feel a little better though, by being able to confide in you.
And when it’s time for you to leave, Penny would follow you to the door and I would say…we should do this again some time. :]
