‘Wynter! Wynter! Get in the car! It is time to go!’  he yelled.

Wynter was nowhere to be found.  He looked around the house to find her.  Nothing.  He went outside to the backyard.  She was in the corner digging away.  He got up to her and grabbed her collar.  ‘C’mon!  We are gonna be late.  You are so dirty.’

He put her in the car and they got on their way.  Wynter liked to stick her head out the window and feel the wind on her face and tongue.

The vet had bad news for them.  Wynter had cancer.

The dog snarled and the cat hissed.  The alley was dimly lit from a street light.  The two animals were fighting over whatever remnants were in a discarded pizza box.

The dog was easily 4 times the size of the cat but the cat was quicker, hungrier and much meaner.  With one swipe of the paw on the dog’s nose the cat was victorious.  The dog scampered out of the alley.

Looking in the box the cat found some crust and a container of marinara sauce.  She picked up the crust in her mouth to take back to her babies.

Do what you love not what you think other people will love.

Personally I love doing my podcast, doing radio, writing short stories, working on sketches, hitting the gym, playing with my dog, eating lots of ice cream.

Sadly most of those things don’t pay me well, or at all.  So I make do and do things I wouldn’t normally do.  Like jobs, am I right?!   But a brother has got to eat so I become a slave to the man.

Possibly some of these things will pay off for me.  But until then I will enjoy what I do.

As I was walking my dog we found something in the road.  Before I reveal what it was I should mention that kind of neighborhood I live in.  It is ok.  I call it ‘hood light.’  It is safe enough but you aren’t really surprised when the SWAT team truck comes down your street.

Ok, we found a used condom in the road.  What the fuck is that about?  It wasn’t near a garbage can.  It was in the road.  Some nasty ass guy forgot he still had it on and tossed it out the window of his car. Lawdy.

My dog likes to sleep on the bed.  My dog likes to sleep under the sheets.  My dog likes to sleep right next to you.  My dog is 30lbs.  My dog likes to take up 2/3 of the bed even though she is only 30lbs.  My dog likes all treats.  My dog likes to get in her cage.  My dog likes to run around the back yard.  My dog likes my cats.  My dog likes to ride in the car.  My dog is not afraid of storms or fireworks.  My dog likes to lick almost everything.  I love my dog.

My dog poops in the house more than she should.

My cat pukes in the house more than he should.

Sometimes I wonder if my dog and cat went on some kind of bender.

People need more public validation than they should.

You shouldn’t get praise for things that you should do.

You should be ok with doing things, you should do, and not getting praise for it.

I’d like to read more but I am not even sure where to begin.

The concept of learning to play guitar intrigues me.

The putting in of time, and energy, less so.

She didn’t answer but he went in to the cabinet and pulled out a box of cereal.  He found a bowl and dumped some Rice Crispies in.  She still didn’t say a thing.

 

He reached into the fridge and grabbed the gallon of milk he had.  He opened it up and got a face full of awfulness.  The milk was spoiled.  ‘Weird, I just got this yesterday.  It shouldn’t be spoiled already.’ he thought.

 

Claire realized he was getting food and began to whimper at him.  He went into the closet where he kept the dog food.

 

‘DON’T!’ she screamed.
