A Little Thing

Updated: Dec 24, 2020

Friday night, I was awakened in the middle of the night by an itchy spot on my back. Right in the center, impossible to reach, and extremely persistent. I reached behind my pillows for the back scratcher, but it wasn't there. Sigh.... I raised my head, looked across Jamie, and spied it on his nightstand. Drat! I knew I had a choice: either reach across Jamie for the backscratcher or get up and walk around the bed for the backscratcher. Neither was a good choice. I didn't want to risk waking Jamie by reaching across, and I didn't especially want to get out from under the warm covers.

I itched my back as best I could (not very good) against the bed. "I'll make sure this never happens again," I vowed sleepily as I drifted off.

Today, happiness arrived in an envelope!

Sometimes it's the little things, ya know?

Our back scratchers are all $1 bamboo ones from Walmart. I bought the first one so I could keep track of our AppleTv remote. I attached the remote to it as we kept losing track of the tiny elusive remote. But the greyhounds love being remotely scratched by the bamboo scratcher. It puts them in a trance. So funny to see.
