“What are you doing?”

“I’m just playing on my phone.”

“You’re not going to take my picture are you?”

“Of course not.”

“Then what are you doing? What the? That’s a flash! You’re taking my picture!”

“Stop hiding behind your cat, you look fine!”

“Then why are you laughing?!”

“Crap! Dropped my phone.”

“I’m not falling for that!”


This little moment in time was remembered because of the Stream of Consciousness prompt: scene/seen.

Remember… – Thankful Thursday

Have you ever sat and wondered at all the things people take for granted?

Have you ever thought of the things you, yourself, take for granted? The people?

I have. I’ve found myself sitting sometimes thinking, “Why did I do that? What was wrong with me?”

So just, for a moment, remember.

Remember that dog that slept nearby so you wouldn’t feel alone.

Remember that animals want some cuddling on the couch too.

Remember that cat that wanted to share the massage roll.

Don’t forget the little moments that made the big moments possible.

Betrayal

You brought another one.

Why on earth do you continue to do this to me? To us?

I was just starting to forgive you for the last vixen you dared bring into this relationship and now you’ve gone and brought yet another one?!

There is something wrong with you. Seriously. Something is just wrong with you!

Do you honestly think I will return to our bed now that she is not only in the picture but in our room?! At the same time?!

Why? That’s all I can really ask anymore. Why? Was I not enough? How was I not enough? Did I not give you enough affection? Waking you every morning for some time alone, making sure that you never missed an important meeting? Always being there when you needed me?

How is this not enough for you!

(sigh)

But I know, eventually, I will forgive you and return. I will once again accept your offerings of affection. I will return to our bed and I will learn to live with…her.

You don’t deserve me.


In honor of my cat, who is finally starting to forgive me for bringing a dog home. A BIG dog. After my sister, her husband and their cat moved in a month ago. I don’t deserve her love sometimes and she lets me know it.
