“I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen.”
Today, I went to my apartment-mate Jason’s house to celebrate Chinese New Year with his family and friends. I’ve been to his house a few times before and reunited with the owner of the house, Toffee.
Toffee is a four year old German Shepherd who allows Jason to sublet her home when school is not in session. She is a very kind and friendly landlady and I spent a lot of time with her.
We played tag, in which I did all the chasing. We then played catch the ball, which I threw to her once and never received the tennis ball back – she likes to play hard to get. Then I had to pay the hourly rent dues by scratching her ears, face, and torso.
Paying my dues.
I’ll be leaving her tomorrow, but Jason swore on his life that she and I are Bonnie & Clyde.
Toffee has been [re]met, but I wonder… how many people have I looked at all my life and never seen?
