When Blogging Comes Up Against Spring
Well I have to admit that in the monumental battle between blogging and Spring, Spring is winning.
Because after a long winter in Canada it's just so AWESOME. Everything comes alive again.
And of course wherever you look love is in the air...
Gawd. These straight people are SHAMELESS. But I know how they feel, because I've got Spring Fever too, so does Sébastien, and so does the dog.
I left him tied up outside a Starbucks the other day, and when I came back he was trying to hump a fluffy white poodle thing, who had been tied up next to him.
Now that he's almost a hundred in human years I think he prefers it that way eh? When they can't get away from him.
Yikes. How embarrassing. We won't be going back to that Starbucks anytime soon.
But what can you do when the swans in the nearby pond are setting such a bad example?
Smooch. Smooch. Smooch.
Boing. Boing. Boing.
Whoops. Where did she go?
Baby I love you. Glug. Glug. Glug.
Golly. That's disgraceful. For that I fed them spinach all winter? These animals are SHAMELESS.
But then so am I.
I'm supposed to race Sébastien tomorrow to a beach about ten kilometres away, for a barbie with some friends. And for once I'm thinking of letting him win.
Let some air out of one of my tires, pretend I had a puncture, smoke a cigarette, wait for him to come chuffing up. And then lead him to this quiet little place in the woods where the cherry blossoms are bursting forth.
And read him my latest poem. Because I love a captive audience. Just like I LOVE Canada in the springtime.
So blogging might have to wait a while eh?
I promise to show you pictures of the swan chicks when they hatch.
In the meantime, since it's Friday night, let's hatch these...
Hmmmm....you know if I was wearing that chicken tail costume when I read my new poem, I bet it would sound even BETTER.
And Sébastien would be even MORE impressed.
Have a great weekend everybody !!!
