Drying Time

Mrs. Wigglebottom loves having a bath.  She didn’t always.  But today, she was more than happy to get into the tub and more than happy to stand there while I shampooed and rinsed her.

But, like anybody, she didn’t really want to be towelled off.  She wanted to run around the house all wet and leaving damp pawprints in the carpet.

So, while I was drying her off, I sang her this song.

“Oh, it’s drying time again, you’re gonna leave me.

I can see that far-away look in your eyes.

I can tell, by the way the suds roll off you,

That it won’t be long before it’s drying time.”

Which I thought was pretty clever.

But she didn’t stick around for the encore.
