IMG_3118In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Dog Named Bob.”

You have 20 minutes to write a post that includes the words mailbox, bluejay, plate, syrup, and ink.

Bob knew how his day would go. First, listen for the clink of a plate or the fridge door opening…closing as syrup and other breakfast fixings are gathered. Yum. Loiter in the kitchen; stand ready for clean up of all crumbs and any foodstuffs that hit the floor. Good. Next, observe pace of movement and sounds to gauge when to ask for after-breakfast trip to backyard. Too early to chase a bluejay, but crows may be out and ready for a game. Fun. Rest of the morning is set aside for nap time under the desk, enjoying the aroma of ink and coffee.  Peaceful. As for the afternoon, Bob expected a trip to the mailbox and perhaps a chance to bark at a passing UPS truck. Bob enjoyed both routine and surprise in his day.
