My Friends

My girlfriend left for work. I got out of bed, opened the glass sliding doors, and got back into bed.

One-by-one my friends came in and joined me. Fred the Raccoon. Shirley the Squirrel. Omar the Possum. Bill the Ant and his family. Roger the Homeless Dog. Jake the Crow. Prudence the Scarecrow.

We laid in bed together.

Jake the Crow said, “This morning I caught a juicy worm. Just before I was to eat it, the worm said, “I’m honored that you chose me for breakfast.” I wish I had that kind of openness to life’s circumstances.”
