I am good now

February 15, 2021 — 1 Comment

Mom took me to the place where I’ve been weighed

And poked

And given treats

That place is not half bad

Until I got tired and next thing I knew

I was waking up from a nap I didn’t know I took

My tummy hurt

And was colder and less furry than normal

And I somehow wedged my head in plastic

Dad picked me up

I couldn’t do anything but sit down and feel sad

About all the stuff I had endured

I was sure no other dog had ever lived through

Such confusion and anguish

I am good now

This is the thirteenth (#13) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!

Bob Ross was a beautiful genius.

He made people believe they could

Paint.

Create.

Laugh.

Love.

And view the world through an optimistic lens.

I dressed up my dog as Bob this Halloween

and I think he would chuckle at that

because he seemed like the kind of guy

who made time for laughter each and every day.

While the costume is silly

I made it with joy and admiration for the type of person

who seems few and far between these days.

May we all be quicker to quiet our thoughts

and slower to judge the actions of others.

This is the third (#3) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write. My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these posts in no set time frame.

If you’re interested in learning more about Bob Ross, I’d encourage you to watch this documentary. You won’t regret spending the time doing so.

Travis Kalanick, I’ve been meaning to tell you:

5. Thank you for thinking of an efficient way to get people around town. Less overall carbon emissions, and more people arriving safely to their desired destinations – win/win. I know you’re probably making a crap ton of money, and I think you deserve it.

4. Thanks for being the only reason my dad finally decided to get with the times and buy a smart phone…and subsequently text me (NOT from the road). So   much     in-explainable   spacing    & random punctuation –???? Bonus: My mom got to take down all of her Christmas decorations in uninterrupted peace this year.

3. Thank you for reminding me that my dad and my husband have more in common than just thinking I’m awesome. They are equally inquisitive and neither is ever wrong (just ask them!). Listening to them compare their ride experiences and driver ratings has been surreal. My mom and I have noticed that they’ve talked more in the past two weeks than in the last two years combined.

2. Thanks for getting my husband out of the house! He knows I love him…so very much. I just try to remind him that he has so much to offer EVERYONE that he shouldn’t waste his unbridled energy on just little old me.

1. Finally, the number one reason I’d like to thank you is because nothing brings me greater gratitude than knowing my soon-to-be 15-year-old has Uber as an option to get him from here to there if he so chooses…one that doesn’t require him to put the pedal to the metal or for me to dislodge my heart from my throat. Dear ol’ dad or grandpa might even come to his rescue from (surge) time to (surge) time.

No. I did not get paid for this post. But I da*n well should have. #MomEndorsement #UberRox #TruthBeToldIHeartThisCompany
