Sometimes on Saturday, after an early morning pee-pee expedition that forces our mother to take us outside at 5 AM, we like to contemplate how lucky we are to have someone like her, who is willing to stand in the pitch black wearing her bath robe, waiting for us to do our business.
Yours In Gratitude,
Sometimes on Saturday, after we’ve taken our early morning walk and participated in an afternoon lounge with our mother, we become unexpectedly on high alert when our parents announce that the garage door opener stops working creating a questionable situation when it comes to our food stash. Will we ever be able to eat again? we wonder to ourselves. But it turns out that there is nothing to poopie in our pants about because our concerned parents turn into detectives and talented garage door openers, thereby ensuring that we will be fed forever.
Can I Get a Hallelujah?

Sometimes on Saturday, after a relatively melancholy week, we like to whisper our fears and secrets into Sharkey’s ear, knowing that between him and our mother there will be some happiness concoction that will be created to wash all our troubles away.

Sometimes on Saturday, after a juggernaut trot across a black topped parking lot that leaves our feet feeling as if we’d roasted them on the barbecue, we like to take the rest of the afternoon off and air out our little tootsies, hoping to god that our mother will resist our stubborn insistence to walk across the equivalent of burning coals in the future.
I Know Not What I Do,
Hal the Hot Tamale
Sometimes on Saturday, after the twentieth warning from the weather man that there will be “monsoonal moisture in the region” we like to see how long we can go without moving a muscle, all the while praying for just the slightest poof of a breeze to refresh our parched hiney.
