I have a new best friend. But its only for a little while. His name is Carl. He wanted to leave the place where he was staying, so I told him he could stay at my apartment. He agreed. This was on Sunday. He’ll probably be only a couple of weeks, so I shouldn’t get too emotionally attached because it won’t be long before he spreads his wings and flies off to parts unknown.
Carl is extremely skinny and is kind of a nuisance. But it is nice to have someone to hang around with, even if it’s only for a short time. He has this annoying habit of falling asleep in front of the TV, then when I change the channel or shut it off, he jumps awake, and shouts:
“Hey, I was watching that show.”
Clearing, Carl is not watching anything but the inside of his sleeping eyes, but I let it go rather than argue with him. Sunday we went and saw a show. Yesterday, we went to a coffee shop and the gym. Today, we went grocery shopping. This is his third day in my apartment. It won’t be long now before he’s up and gone.
My intention of not getting too attached to Carl is already a failure. When his time comes to leave, I will miss him. I won’t miss his vegan diet at all, but I will miss him to be sure. He’s currently taking another nap in front of the TV. I guess I will go now. I have things to do.
Oh, there is one thing I almost forgot to tell you before I go. Carl is a catepillar
