One Day as a Shark: November 13 2021
Today, Stella T. Dog and I went on a walk that was about 3.85 miles. It took us a while, because there are huge piles of leaves everywhere right now. Since the last time I’d gone home to walk her (Thursday) and today, so many more leaves have fallen from the trees. We had high winds the other day, so it makes sense.
There’s something about piles of leaves that really gets Stella interested in sniffing. I don’t know if it’s that the leaves are collected from all over the yard, and therefore contain a bunch of different smells all in one spot or something. Or maybe she just likes the smell of the leaves themselves.
This morning, I drove up to my house, but stopped off at a bakery to get a cheesecake to bring to a family dinner and at a local coffee shop called Colectivo to get an egg and chorizo breakfast burrito and a coffee. The cheesecake was from a place called Simma’s that is one of the top 25 bakeries in the US according to some people who apparently rank bakeries. It’s been around for a while in the area and is famous for its cheesecakes.
This afternoon, though, I drove back down to my hometown, where I’ve been staying since Halloween. That’s because my aunt is in town and my brother and his wife cooked dinner for all of us. I couldn’t miss that, even though I am excited to be spending a couple of days back at my house with Stella T. Dog.
Then I came back, and Stella seemed extremely excited and surprised to see me. When I visit lately, I come in the morning, and I leave in the afternoon, and then she doesn’t seem me again for a couple days or whatever. I did the same thing today, so I’m sure she thought I was just gone for a while. Then I came back and she was like “duuuuuude!!” haha.
Though I have been having a great time staying with my dad, I can say that I’m excited to just to be at my home, on my own other than Stella. I like his company and I think he likes mine, but I’m a private person and certainly appreciate some alone time. I know he appreciates alone time as well. He’s told me as much, but not in an “I want you to leave” sort of way.
I’m kicked off Twitter for a week now. It had me thinking about how funny it is that, for the most part, I’m pretty positive and “normal” when I post here, but on Twitter I seem like I’m batshit crazy. I think it’s just sites like that that drive me to it. Plus, I think I just get some weird kick out of being a dick on Twitter, and I know it’s not healthy. haha. It’s like a fun game for me that I can’t get enough of. I might have to make a shitposting account for Project Blank when it comes out. And no one will be able to stop me!
