Carlin on Campus 5 of 6

I'm sick, so I thought I'd post something funny about being sick. It's near the end of the video, but I hope you will enjoy the whole thing.

Going Away

You are going away
How I wish you could stay
But you had to go
Your boss told you so.

Dinner gets burned
My world had turned
Upside down and inside out
Without a doubt
Nothing is right
Without your kindness and might.

I can’t see the sweet within the sour
Without your power
T o keep the light
Within my sight.

Hurry home.

Rose Dog

I went out to pet my dog today (who loves the weather here. I guess if I had a fur coat on all the time I’d prefer the cold too.) At one point he jolted away to the opposite side of the yard, at first I thought he was just being goofy, then I looked at the bush he was standing in front of and I saw what he wanted to show me: a little rose that was just beginning to bloom. He and I share a special love for flowers; on walks he will pause to smell every flower along the way. This particular rose was too high for Merlin to reach and sniff. So I gently bent the rose down so that he could smell it too. It was a very special moment for girl and dog.
