Week 14: Using yourself differently #1
The traffic is crazy, and the incessant "stop and go" has created deeper nail holes in the steering wheel. Swishing in and out of slow cars, the store grows closer. Unexpectedly, the door slams, and causes irritation but the crunch of snow under ugg boots tucked neatly into turquoise pants soothes. Inside the store, the smell of urine and feces masked with perfume cause a nose wrinkle. The cashier immediately waves and beckons towards the small kennel beneath his feet. A small, brown, wrinkly face stares up, with liquid brown eyes. A swift nod, cash is exchanged, and the puppy is whisked to the car, he whines pathetically but is quickly soothed in the lap of turquoise.
