I’ve had a weird week.
Kristina talked for days on end and it took me a while to figure out what she was doing. First I thought she was talking to me, and I felt pretty flattered to get so much attention.
Then I realized she was focussed on something else entirely. And look what she made me wear.
“Take this hat off my head,” I bark.
“You’re my audience,” Kristina says.
“Audience for what?” I bark.
“I have to read aloud at the Audrey Jessup awards, and I need to practice.”
“Yeah, but why do have to wear a hat?”
“Because I’m pretending you’re sitting in a bar listing to me read my story.”
Okay, I get it. She’s nervous and wants to practice. She keeps mumbling something about the 10,000 hour theory and the more you do something to better you get at it.
So the night of the awards, she comes home all happy and dances around the living room. She won 🙂
Now I just wag my tail. I’ll let her read to me anytime if it helps.
