This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I feel the need for a reminder again that I’m not a raccoon. I’m a dog. I just like digging in trash.
You may not think of the trash contents as delectable delights. I have a fondness for junk food. Because when I was a stray, I had to get my meals where I could find them.
It was a bit exciting wondering what awaited me. And I admit that I miss those days even though I get gourmet meals now. I miss the junk food.
When we were walking around this neighborhood yesterday, I was looking at all of the trash cans just hanging out, waiting for a real raccoon to dig in.
And I was daydreaming about that when Girl Person told me and Brickle to look at the sky.
She said it was the color of cotton candy. And I don’t know what that is. So Brickle told me it was one of Girl Person’s favorite treats. He said that every one of us has a cotton candy favorite in life.
Something that only tastes good to taste good. To feel good. It serves no other purpose but to make us feel good.
And he said you don’t have to feel bad about that. That we all need something that tastes like cotton candy.
You see, you don’t always need a reason to enjoy something. Some things have a purpose for just being delicious. Or nice to look at. Or nice to touch. Or nice to smell.
Take in the cotton candy of life today and enjoy something freely without guilt. Without hesitation. Get that cotton candy! Or trash.
