Everyday at 4:00…..

The whining starts at 3:45 or 4:00.  Imagine a sound that at first sounds like a sigh.  But, it keeps happening over and over.  Then comes the attention grabbing in earnest. The sweet sighs take on a wheezy whine.  Very quiet but very effective.

In my office…IMG_2016_edited-1

Are you done working yet?  Kinda hungry here…


Hi again.  Still here.  Still ready for dinner.


4:05 – Now I have a shadow everywhere I go – in the kitchen for a drink…IMG_2190_edited-1Can I eat now?  Those ice cubes were nice and all but I‘m hungry! Look how good I’m being.

4:20 – I move into the living room to finish my work day with a change of scenery (I need to get out of my office once in awhile). The wheezy-whine continues.  Now it’s constant. Sometimes she even moves her mouth like she’s trying to talk.  I don’t think I want to know what she would say…


HI!  This is important! Did you know I’m hungry?  I’m right here to remind you!

(caught mid-wheeze)



What does ‘at 5:00’ mean?  WHY do you treat me this way?




4:40 – I cave and give her half her dinner after she walks away and acts forlorn on the other side of the room.  I’m a sucker.
