I worked a lot this weekend. (If you popped into the restaurant at any time, virtually open to close, on Saturday or Sunday, I was there to delight/annoy you.)
This little girl missed me. A lot.
She always greets me at the door, but tonight was different. She missed me so much that she couldn’t stop wagging her tail.
The reason this is notable (and hilarious) is because my dog doesn’t really have a tail, so she was just awkwardly wiggling her butt side to side to show me how much she adored me.
And I thought it was so human.
How many of us appreciate someone so much that we never feel like we can adequately show them?
I feel like that all the time. When words or a high five just doesn’t let the people around you know how much they mean to you and how much better they make your life.
It leaves you feeling like a dog, with no tail, wiggling your butt side to side in the hopes that they just understand.
And I hope you understand, and I hope you live a life with people who keep your bottom shaking.
