I am good now

February 15, 2021

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.

This damn dog

October 22, 2018

This damn dog may be the death of me

while breathing life into every moment of my day.

With no appreciation of who is master and who is follower

she yanks me like a rag doll around the neighborhood

yet also gives me a reason to want to walk again.

Those who pass are equally entertained and concerned with her antics.

I tell her I love her and ask about her day.

She leads me to believe I am the sole reason for her existence.

My fuzzy ball of fury is both devoted and demanding.

A faithful friend for eternity.

This is the first (#1) 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 I follow into the same pattern of trying to reach a resolution (in comparison to diet or exercise aspirations), I may finish about 14 of them total before I decide to throw in the towel and move onto other pursuits. Humor me while this writing trend lasts by reading and commenting if you feel so inclined.
