yesterday i spent my day once again within beige and blah walls...
this time they were different walls,
walls that belonged to 'big people' high above
this time i was having my fingerprints taken.
we drove many miles to sit for many minutes...
i noted whilst 'whiling away' my waiting time that indeed the whole room was void of any kind of decoration other than a clock and a large american flag,
it was of no surprise to see not one person within this space wore a smile.
i noted upon leaving the room where i had past my day, the people working there could not actually see the outside from within their working space.
i looked at the little piece of paper i held within my hand, a small survey requiring my feedback. only 4 questions, quite simple... and question #4 perhaps the most simple of all.
"what do you think we could do to make your visit more enjoyable"
(or words to that effect, i cannot quite remember it, as at the time my little brain cells were struggling with being in a beige environment)
i said to my man
"well that's easy, this place is crying out to be doilified. next time perhaps i should bring one with me, and just leave it casually upon a desk."
i am now imagining that little doily trying with all it's 'little doily might' to bring a little bit of 'happy' into the space.
i fear that little doily may have it's work cut out...
meanwhile back at the shed, little olive is trying to move on from her puppy act.
i note on most days she is doing a jolly good job at it,
but other days it all goes to pot and she is tres pesky.
having turned 10 months she is trying hard though and that is all one can ask for...
her acting abilities are coming along nicely
and she tries most days to have her listening ears on.
for i mentioned some while back that listening ears were very important if we were to get along 'fine and dandy',
since then she listens as best she knows how
and then of course i had no idea at the time of getting a little doggie only a few inches off the ground, just how useful that could be.
to start with i saw her 'low lying' ways as a negative,
she could get into places and spaces i did not wish her to see, smell or taste.
but it would appear as time has past, there are advantages to her little 'ground level' ways.
yes dearest readers, i am most delighted to report that i have no need for a mini vacuum robot 'thingy' to go around the shed gathering dust bunnies and other 'iffy' things.
i have a 'little olive' that does the most peachiest job.
a most useful skill to possess and as i noted to her the other day after she had done a tres wonderful job at 'dust bunny' collecting
"that will get you far in the world little olive, perhaps your acting abilities are not enough on their own, but with a 'dust bunny' collecting talent added in, i'm sure its just a matter of time before 'they' come a knocking for you"
once again she wonders who 'they' are, all she knows is, 'they' are out there ~ Tif
