I was reading another blog about the Harry Potter books and movies, and my mind just did a little fantasy flight thing and I thought, I could write a whole series of books by Noah. They would be best sellers and the movies would FASCINATE everyone. My very next thought was that Noah’s first book, written today, would have to be titled ‘Noah the Big White Dog is Bored.’ End of book/movie deal fantasy.
Like the opening paragraph would have to be:
If the lady tells me to ‘down’ one more time I am going to poke my eyes out. Ooh, or maybe I’ll just chew on the edge of her robe. Or maybe that piece of paper over there. Hey, I wonder what’s UNDER the linoleum? I bet I can get it up if I try hard enough! What? We’re moving to a different room? DOWN AGAIN? If only I had thumbses, Chloe, I WOULD poke my eyes out. Then the lady would be sorry.
Its not that I don’t like laying down. In fact its my most favorite position when I am not patrolling the yard and barking at necessary annoyances. I just don’t like HER to tell me to lay down. Remember, ‘Great Pyrenees are extremely intelligent and capable of independent decision-making apart from human direction.’
The end. Whew. Writing a book is hard work. Who knew?
STORM WATCH PART 3
Not only is Noah bored, Debby is unmotivated today. Its raining AGAIN. Raining enough that I don’t want to take Noah out for a walk. The computer says its snowing here in Pine Grove. Harrumph.
Visit to the bay area was good. It was supposed to be a ‘Thanksgiving’ visit with my dad. Fortunately, he doesn’t like to eat large volumes of food any more, so instead of going out for a big lunch or dinner, we had some cottage cheese/crushed pineapple/walnuts that I had brought with me, and then went out for some frozen yogurt after we did a little shopping for him. It was a good day. He is so appreciative of the simple little things that I can do for him.
The commute home was AMAZING. Usually if I try to leave the bay area by 3pm, it just crawls along until you get ‘over the hill.’ This time I left his house at 5pm and thought it would be even worse. But somehow, the traffic never slowed down! I had in mind that I wanted a cheeseburger without bun like Pubsgal occasionally has, but I didn’t want to jinx the commute by stopping and eating, so I remembered that In and Out does ‘protein style, and stopped and tried it. Pretty darn good. They used substantial fresh leaves of iceburg lettuce to wrap the burger in. It was every bit as secure as a bun. It did feel weird going to a fast food drive through–I bet its been three years since I did that. Not going to make that a regular habit though. Its just not a good path for me to go down. I did think about waiting to get home to fix my own (I had everything needed at home) but decided that would be too late and I would be too tired.
Anyway, it was a great day all around. But I guess that’s why I slept until 9am this morning??? Okay, enough prattle. I think I’ll get up and take on the day. Which will involve getting wet, no doubt. Yuck. Oh yes, to be content in whatever state I am in. Does that include wet, God?
