- Eat anything you want like lots of salami, cheese, canned food and cat poop.
- It is okay to spit out your medicine if you don't like the taste.
- Spend as much time as you wish laying around on the sofa, the leather one. Oh, the bed, too.
- Sleep until you get to eat again or until you have to go outside to the bathroom and then do it on the patio of you can't make it to the garden.
- Let everyone else clean up after you.
- Speak your mind to mailmen, UPS drivers, young whippersnapper puppies, squirrels or anyone else who catches your attention.
- Don't let anyone make you take a bath, whine, they will give up. (okay, forget this one, they will give you a bath ANYWAY, don't fight it, it gets over with faster)
- Lick other's ears. Like your sister's. Alot.
- Pass gas when you want, they will just pat your head and say in that baby voice "Isn't that cute?!"
- Look appealing so everyone who walks by has to stop and rub their hands all over you (feel you up).
- Use any and all looks to get whatever you want.
- Drink until it is running out the other end.
- If you don't feel so hot, you don't have to exercise.
- That although someone might be physically gone, the memories never go away.
And most importantly . . .
- Accept love and give love completely, unconditionally, never taking each other for granted for in the blink of an eye the one you love could be gone.
If it is one thing Mikki has done exceptionally well, it has been loving me without conditions, even when I took her for granted.
I am going to spend my time . . . loving. No matter how long I have.
Can "simple" animals teach us humans something valuable? I think they can.
If you had little time left . . . how would you spend it?
