Oh, My Poor Ego!
"We should be here (by the benches), but if we aren't we will stop by the library." She said.
I was so excited. I had never been in any admissions photos, I don't think any of the library staff had been. This was so exciting! They always chose other teachers for that kind of thing. I was thinking about my outfit and that my hair actually came out nice and curly today. Convo went by in a blur. Such is the curse of a huge head of celebrity.
As I walked to where they were taking photos, Jam saw Mrs. Iglehart and her ambassador dog Jessie in the distance and started to bark. We waited until he calmed down before walking any closer to the photographer.
"Hi, I'm CD." I extended my hand to the photographer.
"Hi, I'm..." I wasn't listening because Jam pulled and I turned to get him under control again. I smiled back at the photographer. "Can you have the dog sit right over here with his back to the students? Not too much in the sun though."
"Oh." I paused and looked down at Jam. He was resplendent in his labrador glory. So handsome. "Of course I can. He sits beautifully."
I had Jam do a sit stay, which he did perfectly and of course he was a handsome boy. I remained off to the side with my hand out saying, "Stay. Stay."
Inside my head I was saying, "Fool, fool."
