With all of this thinking about music, I finally sat down to upload some more of my CDs into my iTunes. This should have been a relaxing project for a Sunday afternoon.
You see, my dog has an obsession with flashing or moving light. She has been known to lunge at the wall to catch the beam of a passing car’s headlights.
Have you ever noticed how a CD reflects the light? Aurora did. Every time I took a CD out of its case to pop it into the slot on my laptop, she went crazy. Her bark was so irritating due its intensity and high-pitch that I could no longer continue to upload music.
Later on, I settled myself on the couch with both of our dogs to watch the Oscars, my guilty pleasure. It is my experience that dogs make the best company during the Oscars because nobody else appreciates the glitz of the production like I do.
It took one flash of lightning to peel Aurora away from my side. She went tearing at the window in an effort to “catch” the lightning. This time, the playful nature of her misguided attack had me cracking up.
How can the same obsession be so irritating one moment and so hilarious the next?
