it is with a heavy heart, that i share a loss with you. while on vacation, i lost a dear friend. a friend that had seen me through some great times in my life.
i had been sharing the day with my special friend. all was going well. we got into the hot tub together and i rested “old faithful” on the edge of the hot tub so as to not boil the libation that lived within. i went to reach for her and knocked her off the side to the cement below where her layers were split apart. i howled in a heartsick wail. i can only share the loss today because the cloud has lifted.
today i walked into my local independent coffee shop starbucks and there waiting for me was a cup that seemed to be sent from the gods for me alone. it’s made of a rubbery substance that will certainly withstand a bounce or two should i get careless again. it’s got a straw AND it’s spill proof. it is essentially a big girl sippy cup. i am over the moon.
i asked the bug what he thought of that fact that i get excited over such silly things and he said “it’s not silly you really like cups. just like i really like legos.”
i asked the goose the same question. she said,”stop acting like a five year old”…again.
i asked stubs and he responded with a thinly veiled. “yeah nice.” i will ask him again when he wants something from me and see what the answer is then….HA!
