I have a pet I’d like to get rid of…to tell you the truth I’d love to see it gone forever, never to return. I know that sounds so bad, mostly I’m a lover of all pets, however I just really dislike…ok… Hate her.
There is very little to like about her. Well I guess she is soft and warm, she goes with me everywhere. When I lay down in bed... she lies next to me, and when I relax on the couch... she sits on my lap. I can even rest my ice cream bowl on her…she don’t mind because she LOVES ice cream.
But then mostly she just drive me crazy, like whenever I bend over to tie my shoes or pick up toys…there she is…always in my way.
I’ve had her for what seems like forever; she’s been with me since the birth of my first son. So it’s been 12 years now and its just time to let her go! She can really be quite a pain!
The other day I was out at the store buying some snacks, (one of her favorites) I was in one of them “self check-outs” do-hickys when I lean over to put my money in the money eating thingy, what a shock to hear the dang thing yelling at me!
“THERE IS AN UNEXPECTED ITEM IN THE BAGGING AREA”
What the….I got nothing "extra."
I look down at the “bagging area”…and there she is, my pet, resting herself on top of the arm of the bag holder thing-a-ma-jig.
My pet…AKA…My belly, was the “unexpected item” the "EXTRA".... just sitting there looking back up at me, I could tell what she was thinking.
“What! Just get the snacks and let’s go already, I’m hungry.”
That's right my belly…and hell Yes it’s an unexpected item! I didn’t expect all this extra “Baggage” when I had babies.
But I have to tell you one thing, she sure has been one faithful loyal pet!
