Yesterday there was a thunderstorm.
After our usual mail run,
I opted go inside and wait for it to blow over.
Wednesday Guy's Wife came and visited.
She and Mom hugged and said goodbye to each other.
I remembered that Mom had told me the
Wednesday People were moving away.
I thought this meant that Mom wouldn't be leaving me
as she usually does on Wednesdays.
I, however, was wrong.
When the time came, a new Wednesday Guy showed up
and took Mom away.
Fortunately Daddy was home.
He and I sat on the patio together...
...and enjoyed a fabulous sunset.
Then Mom came home, said something to Daddy,
and then they left together.
I was alone.
The good thing is that they weren't gone very long.
I tried to get Mom to take me on a nighttime walk.
When she took a shower instead, I resigned hope and curled up
on the bench in the dining room.
I dreamt of getting more attention from Mom.
Another day another dream.
