“You’ve got a job to do,” I told Tinkerbelle this morning.
Though I knew she probably didn’t understand.
I’m pretty sure dressing up in a Mrs. Santa Claus costume wasn’t exactly something Tink had signed up for.
“But Tinkerbelle, spreading holiday cheer this December is even more important than usual.” I added.
“After all, the news lately hasn’t been exactly sweetness and light so I was thinking you could help out a little. You know, maybe spread some of that fairy dust around.”
She finally seemed to acquiesce.
So I quickly slid the little red dress over Tink’s head as she excitedly tried to chew off the $1.00 thrift store price tag.
And she appeared even more excited once she eyed the original $20.00 tag directly underneath.
I’m pretty sure it was my imagination again.
Still, I told Tink we’d be donating the difference to the food shelf which is one of the many causes the thrift shop supports next door.
She then looked up at me for a while and slowly licked my hand.
In turn, I rewarded Tink with a treat which she immediately carried over to her chi-brother Rex’s food bowl.
I watched her drop it in.
It seems that Tink maybe one very sweet, and smart little cookie after all.
