September 30. I haven’t a clue why I am so tender towards Button.
I put him on a different pedestal this morning and saw him smiling from ear to ear.
“What makes you so happy this morning, Button?”
“I am happiest seeing you every morning. I also realize it’s the beginning of a new day even though I can’t look outside.”
“It’s just a matter of a month or less when they will remove the ply boarding the windows and you will be able to look outside. You know they are repairing the exterior of the building.”
“But they’ve taken ages. I feel slightly low sometimes because this room is so dark and I can’t see the sky and the twinkling stars at night.”
“Don’t complain. It’ll all be over soon. Think positive. All the rooms in this wing including ours have been sealed or you could have moved in with one of us.”
“Think positive! How?”
“Like how heavenly it will be when the ply is removed. Like seeing birds fly. Like having the breeze caress your face. Like seeing day break. I can name a hundred things.”
“You make me feel good already.”
