Next Time We Will Take You

husband and I rarely leave house at same time someone having to stay home with the baby Our cocker spaniel Sophie Today we did. She had hurt eyes when we got out of the car We had been gone twenty-three minutes but I felt guilty Until I came into the living room where she had parked her mangy six-year-old broken necked toy duck at the top of my favorite recliner I gave her a look and tossed her “baby” off of my recliner. So she turned to her Daddy. “Next time we will take you,” he said. Yes, I thought, because if we don’t you will putting my lipstick on the duck.
