I woke this morning just as I do every day, Emery pawing at the covers, whimpering to be fed and a whisper of “Tom!” I grabbed my phone from the charger pulled on a fleece and headed downstairs.
“Click” lights on.
“Clack” coffee pot on.
“Tink, tink, tink” Emery fed.
“Blink” time to check my phone in the morning (Smart Phone) glow.
I start to scroll, while Emery munches away. eBay, craigslist, email, people.com, blogger… a comment? Someone read my post and commented? A small smile forms on my face, I love comments. I click the comment and see that it is written by Stacey from the Slice of Life Challenge. My heart skips a beat and my smile widens on my face.
I think to myself, “Wow! Stacey read my blog post, of all the posts she reads a day she cared enough about mine to comment.” I read the comment and rush back upstairs.
“Hey, Can I turn the light on?”
“Sure,” comes her reply without looking up from her phone.
“Guess who posted a comment on my blog?” The question comes rushing out of my mouth.
Still half asleep she continues to look at her phone, “Who?”
Not allowing her obvious disinterest to faze me. I reply, “Stacey, from Slice of Life and she wants to use my post during the challenge next month.”
“Hey! That’s great. Can you grab me two towels from the bathroom?”
I respond a quick, “Yeah,” as I leave the room. Still unfazed and with my sidekick Emery in tow I enter the bathroom. “Emery, guess who posted on my blog last night?” I sing in my best happy dog voice.
I look down and I am greeted with the classic confused dog look!
“Oh well,” I sigh, “Come-on, E. I think the coffee is ready.”
“Clink, clink, clink” down the stairs we go.
