In the Kitchen of Good and Evil: Cold Meatloaf and Lessons From the Dingo

Persons of Great Worth and Importance (dogs) have wisdom for all of us.

Being Southern Somewhere Else

Tonight, my thoughts are abstracted as I stand before the sink, a slice of cold meatloaf poised half-raised to my mouth.  The harsh rasp of Sally’s expectant breathing echoes in the dim kitchen.  I imagine that it can be heard on planes that fly overhead.  While it is an expected byproduct of her medical condition, I suspect she uses it rather more than is necessary to draw our attention at meal or snack times.  Panting and drooling.  She was sound asleep when I crept into the kitchen for my snack of cold meatloaf.  Of course, I remind myself that she can sense it being sliced a mile away.  It was only a matter of time before she was there, gazing up at me with her most adorable expression on display.

“Share with those of Us who have not.” The local talent is hard to resist.
