I learned something from my Great Dane about great expectations. Let them go.
If you expect nothing, you'll never be disappointed. Josette, my 18-week-old pup, taught me this.
"Sit, Josette." She stands up.
She wags her tail and spills my cup.
"Quiet, Josette." She starts to bark.
She runs off chasing squirrels in the park.
She disobeys with every command.
as if my words she can't understand.
She's a puppy.
What can I expect?
Best to pour myself Scotch
and wait for its take effect.
