I Walk the Line
My blogging gets shitty when I am hiding something. My blogging has been pretty shitty lately. I feel like I am walking a minefield of worries.
My job may be eliminated. And it isn't like it is a good time to look for a job, either. My mom is in constant pain. My dad is legally blind and getting more forgetful and confused by the day. Giant blobs of mucus are taking over the ocean.
And now my dog is deaf. I don't think she lost her hearing suddenly, but I noticed it suddenly. I went to my folks' house and she was outside in the back yard. I went to look for her and saw her around the corner of the house, standing looking at the back door.
I said "Goldie."
She didn't even look.
"Goldie. GOLDIE." Nothing.
Finally she saw me out of the corner of her eye and came leaping up, happily.
So. She still seems happy but it must be strange for her, the dog with supersonic hearing, the dog who could hear a lizard rustle a leaf 10 feet away, to be deaf.
Fortunately we both already know everything the other one wants and is thinking, so there isn't much talking to do. It's just another weird thing.
Tell me some happy news.
