Constant Companion at 20:11

What I'm doing at 20:11 in 2011... I've been sitting on the couch in front of the TV for a couple of hours now... something very unusual for me. I don't know why... but I'm very tired tonight.

One thing that is not out of the ordinary is my constant companion, Charlie. He truly is my shadow. He follows me everywhere I go. In the afternoons he's happy, in the mornings, when I'm getting ready for work, he pouts... but he's by my side... always.

When I sit still, he gets as close as possible. I'm on the couch, and he's sitting down with his head on my lap. Pure adoration. Who could resist that face...? Life just doesn't get any better than this.
