Instead of taking me to the dog park on Sunday afternoons, for the next 4 Sundays (starting next Sunday October 5th) my human will be leaving me alone in our house with just The Cat for company. (And if you knew The Cat, you would know her company is no consolation.)
My human says this is just because she is “facilitating” a class called (http://womanspiritcenter.com/WomanSpirit_Center.com/Writing_as_a_Spiritual_Practice.html)
Trying to make me feel better about being left alone with The Cat, she said one writing exercise she’ll try is to ask her students to “write about yourself in the voice of your pet – your dog, cat, bird, hamster, or goldfish. What don’t they understand about you? What do they know that no one else does? Let them tell some of your secrets.”
Well, maybe that will be good for the other humans in the class, but I don’t see what good it will do me – my human already writes about herself in my voice. (She doesn’t write about herself in the voice of The Cat, though. I think that’s because she’s afraid of what The Cat would say. The Cat can be really nasty.)
And I don’t see why she needs to “facilitate”, whatever that means. Sounds like one of those fancy human words that really just mean “talk a lot.”
But all it means to me is that I won’t be going to the dog park that Sunday.
