i was in one of my moods. under no circumstances was i going to entertain the pet humans for cheap what-nots and snuggles. no way sweetheart, find someone else to make your day.
i took the pet human to the mall first, and didn't ~wiggle~ and then to the office supply joint to pick up some paper. any self respecting swashbuckling pirate wizard writer ferret needs a few reams of paper. no snuggles there, too stuffy, too business like for my sullen attitude. nope, wasn't gonna' do it
rolling my eyes, we pulled into the grocer. "i am doing as the therapist suggests sammy, and i am not buying anything but eggs and bread today"
i might as well have been left in the car. if i can't buy what i want, why bring me? doesn't the world revolve around me?
"OH MY GOODNESS IT'S SAM!!" the high pitched voice was shocking on the best of days, today it was an instant assault upon my lil 'ol skullbones.... she tried to entice me wif a plastic pack of something or other.
the pet human said, "sammy's not himself"
"oh, really?" as she gave me a cheek pinch.
the grocery manager came over, with a shiny wrapper. "here sammy, your favorite"
i gave a tiny ~wiggle~ only by the hardest
"IT'S THE MOST FAMOUS FERRET ON THE PLANET!!!" another clerk, who slobbered me wif a kiss
i gave two ~wiggles~
then a spinny move as i jumped on the pet human's shoulder. a remarkable effort, as it involved the physical combined wif da spiritual - impressing all of the humans with my gymnast's skills - they all smiled and laughed as i made their collective day. i was back to my normal self
proving once again, that happiness is a choice we must keep on making, over and over, moment by moment
