Today I took a walk in the snowy slush (it was 80° on Sunday!) and thought about some things.  Mostly, I sung the song from the Neverending Story to myself, but I did do some thinking.

I miss Kiki.  She would’ve hated today.  She did not like the snow or peeing and pooping outside in the cold weather.  I bet it kinda sucks to be a little dog in the winter.  Poor little girl.

I also thought about weddings and engagements and sappy stuff like that.  A good friend of mine just got engaged and I’m throwing them an engagement party on Saturday.  Never a dull moment.

I thought a little bit about my trip to the Bahamas a couple of months ago.  I miss sunshine.  This winter better hurry up and end.  It’s like every time we get a surprise snow after a warm day I feel a twinge of defeat.

But mostly, I thought about change, and I don’t just mean the weather.  March was quite a month of change, y’all.  It started with terror (long story, not worth telling) and then quickly escalated to sadness, then craziness, and then just plain confusion.  One thing that changed as well was that my little solo living room dance parties quietly exited my life- and that is just a shame.  I hadn’t noticed!  Dancing makes everyone smile, no matter if you are Kiki or the grumpy old neighborhood man who glares at the passersby from his porch.

So, without further ado, I am cranking up an old dance mix (no time to make a new one, this is an emergency), shaking off the cold, and starting a solo dance party.  Today it will be in the dining room (in the spirit of change).

Our pets can mean so much. They’re unconditional, loving, selfless friends. They teach us how to love, and unfortunately, they teach us about loss as well.

I will deeply miss my friend, Kiki. Such a sweet little girl. She hadn’t a mean bone in her body. Tonight she met a tragic death that my heart hurts to think about. I hope she knew how much I loved her.

The world is less bright without her in it. In fact, it is much uglier now.

For some reason we persist.

Anybody Want a Chihuahua?

16 Feb

I hate my dog.

Not really. I love my dog. I just love her less now.

I will explain.

Not often, but every now and then someone does something and you can just never look at them the same way ever again. Right? Well that happened. In a big way. I was just reminded of it so I thought I would relay the story on to all of my little ducklings so that I do not become Cruella de Vil in anyone’s eyes. Always helps to know the facts.

I’m not even sure how to tell it. I get emotional at the memory.

So there I was, lying on the couch watching TV and eating a Toblerone. Kiki, the dog, she snuggled up next to me on the pillow. She’s a Chihuahua mix so she can fit in pretty small places. She also eats poop in the backyard sometimes.

She waited…

And waited…

And right as I took a bite of the chocolate bar…


That’s not the kicker.

You ready for it?

She PUKED the POOP right onto my FACE! As I had chocolate in my mouth!

It will never be the same after that stunt. I started puking- for like an hour. It was the barf-apocalypse. And I scrubbed myself harder than Lady Macbeth, but still everytime I look at her I smell that AWFUL foulness. Chocolate will never be the same, either.


It was my Vietnam.
