I work at a library during the day, and when I get home, I try to go for a walk around sunny North Palm Beach. Then I eat, have a cup of tea, and settle down to edit. Some days are more difficult than others. For example, there are some evenings that a certain furry friend of mine feels that I am not paying enough attention to her.
That’s Petunia. She thinks that editing is a waste of time, and that I should be petting her and playing with her. Her favorite game is “fetch”. I throw a little toy mouse, and she fetches it, and brings it back to me.
“What are you doing? You should be petting me instead!”
I have done all of the editing that I needed to do tonight, so perhaps I will go play with Petunia. Or maybe I will be scolding her instead, because she loves to scratch things and tear furniture apart. Well, I suppose I have my job, and she has hers . . . .
