Lately, I feel like Daisy ...
This is Daisy. Daisy is lazy ... or at least VERY comfortable most of the time. We laugh because it's either this soft-throned queen napping or a vigilant pursuit of whatever she feels needs her attention to make things right. There's no middle ground. When she's in her comfort zone, she doesn't want to leave. When she's told it's time to go outside, she usually does so reluctantly. And if there's nothing to hold her attention, she's back at the door ready for her cushion again. If there is something to hold her attention, she goes overboard and once again, she has to be instructed (and sometimes forced) to go back inside.
She really isn't interested in doing much of anything others think up for her. She thinks too much. She evaluates everything. And she is already well aware that there is much to monitor ... and acts like she's the only one monitoring it. (And I'll let you in on a secret. She kind of is - no one would care if she didn't!)
Daisy has a dead-pan expression that can't quite imitate a smile. And even when she wants attention, it's a flat and authoritative grabbing paw that finds your arm or knee. "It's time for love," she paws. "It's time for love now."
"It's time for love."
"It's time for joy."
"It's time for peace."
"It's time for creativity."
