Me and My Pawky
Remember the "Me and my Llama" song from Sesame Street? This kid (possibly a girl, maybe a boy) went to the dentist with their llama and they sang "Me and my llama, me and my llama, me and my llama and me!" Anyways, I change llama to Pawky during the day and sing it to him. He is my best friend (for now) in Korea. Grant's been leaving at 3:30ish in the morning to go to work, so Pawky and I are left to start the day together. We usually eat breakfast then check our Facebook, email, blog and twitter accounts. Sometimes we skype with my sister and then we read or clean the house. Later we go on a walk up the big stairs, to the park and through the little town we live in. Most people are scared of Pawky and jump off the sidewalk, but today a girl grinned at me through the coffee shop window. It seriously made my day! Me and my Pawky need some extra encouragement sometimes. Earlier, Pawky helped me put together a bookshelf that will somehow become my sewing table. I wanted to buy the card table at the BX, but it was a little too pricey. We ended up buying two small bookcases at E-mart and a tabletop to put on top. Storage and utility, right? Except the bookcases are as tall as my ironing board, so I think I will need to buy a stool too. Oh well, such is daily life for me and my Pawky. I think I might need more friends than just my dog! Today, I went to lunch with a friend named Bevin and her awesome little girl, Mason. She said she'll go to Dunkin' Donuts with me next week. Another friend and Minnesota native, Tara, will be here next month too. Don't worry, Pawky will still be my first best friend.
After I posted this I went to YouTube and found the video. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgkYHhG18uc Korean YouTube might be different, so you might have to search for "llama and sesame street" to find it. Notice the girl and the llama's teeth are about the same AND the "Me and My Llama" song doesn't mask the dentist drill very well. Fingernails on a mother chalkboard! Bonus: Pawky and the Llama's butt look the same.
