I’m Not Hallucinating​

There I was in my front room minding my own business and rearranging the furniture. I was singing one of my favorite little tunes by  Taylor Swift, I’m not going to say which one because I don’t want to be judged. So there I was singing and having me a good ole time. Then all of a sudden I looked up and there it was staring right in my face.

I screamed “”””ELIJAH””””” from the top of my lungs and stumbled back. I lost my balance and flipped over the back of my couch, but I hopped up as fast as I could. I needed to see if it was still there! Unfortunately, this HUGE big face dog was still there.

There it was creeping slowly towards me. I thought if I run then it will run too. So I stood still, and I screamed ELIJAH again! Finally, my daughter yells, hurry and get up right now.

My son’s big feet starts to stomp quickly down the stairs. He runs into the front and has a wild, scared, and crazy look in his eyes. But by the time he showed up, the dog had run through my room that we call the opportunity room and through the kitchen and out the back door.

I told my son what I saw, so he took off towards the kitchen and saw nothing. He closed the back door and asked me, why was this door opened? I explained that Larry, our dog was outside, so I let him roam in my pergola while  I finished rearranging the front room. While I was trying to explain, I looked at my son’s face, and his expression said it all. However, he still chose to vocalize his concerns.

He put his hand on my shoulder and said: “mom are you sure you saw a dog? You may be hallucinating.”

You could have chosen to read any blog, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
