When I was younger it was easier to accept as the norm for in my mind it had always been this way.
As I shuffle through those various recordings of the minutes in my mind, I see that it had times when it wasn't always a bad thing.
I was never expected to go through the painstaking phase of putting together an orderly bed like the others, I just pulled my blankie this way and that, and was pleased with the other's laughter, not realizing the reason at the time.
Even when it came to my toys I wasn't expected to put them away. But then I can replay the endless minutes of the others tossing my favorite duckie around and hiding it from me with a startling clarity.
And meal time always filled me with anticipation, everyone laughing and talking. The minutes ticked by slowly as I waited for their endless chewing to cease, and for me to get the leavings off their plates.
Now all of this could have gone on without me thinking too much more about it, except for one thing. One ultimate indignity. The minute I realized that my strange hairy little brother, didn't have to go outside during a blizzard to use the potty.
It's a dog's life.
