An Afternoon with LLoyd
This is a story about a man named Lloyd.
The day started out well enough: The Dog and I got up, made coffee had breakfast all while BW slept snoring away in the other room. It was quiet and after a while even the dog went back to bed and I had the whole house to myself. Nice and quiet.
And then, I heard it: The jingling sound of the dog’s collar as she shakes herself awake, which means : BW is awake too. After a good morning grunt from BW and I delivered her coffee (she’s got a good thing going with the coffee delivery thing ) the coffee started to kick in and then I heard it: “Let’s do something fun today”
This statement, I have learned means three things:
- I am gardening
- It will usually involve the dog
- It will more than likely involve food
In this particular instance, numbers two and three applied: I present to you,
Now, under normal circumstances I would be okay for going out to a park on a nice sunny sunday. But this particular day, despite the sun it’s still a tad chilly to be going outside when there’s a nice warm cup of coffee inside and I can bask in the glow of the computer screen. But my input fell on deaf ears and before you knew it I was holding a dog in one hand and a burrito in the other.
This brings me back to this Lloyd fellow. I blame him. I could have probably persuaded BW to something warmer like the art gallery or even a Sunday drive but nope. If Lloyd is in town, we’re going to visit and there’s not much I can do to persuade her otherwise so I might as well just play along..
Also, BW said I could have a Coke.
So, despite my attempt to give away the dog to a very nice lady who stopped to pet her while BW was placing the taco order I ended up having a nice time and as the saying goes: Happy wife = Happy Life. Bonus points if you buy her Tacos.
ps: don’t tell BW I had a good time. She’ll make me do it again.
