Elevators - Schmelevators

Every morning on my way the the office from the parking lot, I take my time and read my "P-mail". I have lots of messages from friends and strangers. It just takes a while to sniff it all in, and then to issue my replies. I answer all of my fans by giving them a whiff of my Parfum de EmEm to remember me by.

My mom gets a little impatient. OK! A LOT impatient. (NOTE: I was trying to be nice).
"Come ON, Mary-Margaret! We don't have all day!".
I roll my eyes and move to the next bush.
"NOW! TODAYYYYYYY!!", she adds, with emphasis. I get the drift. "Uh huh...Uh huh!!" (I think) And I move to the next plant.

"ELL-E-VAY-TORRRR!". OK OK...I hear her, and I know this is really serious. I wind up my correspondence and move into the little hallway. I wait while the Elevator does it's stuff and opens the door. I can't wait to get inside.
"Me me..ME FIRST!" (I say) and as soon as I'm settled, I just take all the smells in. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is what life is all about. God knew what he was doing when he made Elevators.

There's something of particular interest.....right....THERE! Yup! Right where the door closes.
"Hang on!", (I say). "Let me check this intriguing odor out for a second".
I poke my nose where the door is closing and Mom shrieks like I'm going to be made into MUSH. The door quickly opens and I'm very surprised, but also very happy that I'm not squished. This gives me time to check things out.

After sniffing a bit, I step back and the door starts to close and I catch wind of the aroma again. I start to sniff and, before Mom can say another word, the door opens again. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I like this feeling of power!! Yessssssssssssss! Nose out - door opens. Nose in - door closes. I am SUPER DOG!!! This is fun. Who needs buttons, huh?

Nose out...nose in. Door opens...door closes. AMAZING!!! I can't wait until Monday to do this all over again. I AM DOG...HEAR ME BARK!! Woo hooo!! Mom just rolls her eyes and leans up against the wall until I am finished with my illustration of Canine Supremacy!

She sighs something like "IN FOR RED CENTS OR" under her breath. "OR" what? (I wonder). I have no idea what she's talking about, but I'm sure it's her way of praising me for my new-found ability. I wonder what else I can do?

Happy Weekend!
