Hi. Not sure what to write or how to start these things, but I am looking forward to seeing how it shapes up. It was 65 degrees in NYC yesterday. Today, I woke up at 6:30 to hail and 38 degree temp. Now it is snowing. Like really snowing. Weird. And unfortunate because (well for many reasons, but) I have to take my dog, Indy, to the groomer this morning and by the time we get home he’ll probably be dirty from the slush on the ground. Don’t worry, I wouldn’t dream of making Indy walk home in the weather. Mostly because Indy wouldn’t dream of doing it. He’ll be in the stroller til we get to our block, but then he’ll have to get out to tend to some “business.” I have such anxiety about these grooming days. Today we’re going to try a new place. They seem nice and professional. But then they always do at first. It’s funny that some of the more blatantly racially charged experiences I’ve had in NYC have been at a frickin’ dog groomer. Actually, it’s not funny. I would be anxious anyway, because that’s just how I operate, but knowing that my dog will probably be treated better if my white male roommate takes him to the groomer kinda sends me over the edge. And here I was wondering what on earth I’d write this morning and doubting that it would have anything to do with race. I am looking forward to writing about whatever on here tho and not being so consumed with black and white. Seems like I just can’t get away from it tho. For now.
