100 Issues for 100 Days: #96

#96: Dog Days

Today work was the opposite of work. First of all, there was food. A wonderful twist of fate had multiple events going on that involved people bringing full on pans of food to school today. Then there was the calm that descends due to a gray day and groups of students being off-campus. And finally, there were dogs.

My supervisor brought in his sweetheart of a chocolate Lab who I swear is one of the best dogs I've ever met. Then some of my students who were training dogs as part of a community service project presented what they'd done. And to cap it all off, a parent brought in newborn puppies to show the students. In other words: perfection.

I love my cat (one of them ran away so it's singular now), but sometimes you just need puppy love. That snuffly sweetness that only comes from a wet nose and a face lick. I really enjoyed just cuddling with all the wacky dogs that came through today.

The pièce de résistance was a dance show that a friend was performing in. I went to see her dance but the show was so much more. There was some horribly wonderful singing, including Ricky Martin's "Cup of Life" and Rent's "Seasons of Love". Then there were cute kids. Many of the dance pieces where choreographed to some of my all time favorite songs, including a Janet Jackson medley. Basically, it was a perfect storm of awesome.

Essentially, a great day. Oh, did I mention the puppies?
