Many months ago I was reading an article about the Obama family's new dog Bo. Halfway through the article, I read this:
"Bo's a handsome little guy. Well suited for formal occasions at the White House, he's got tuxedo-black fur, with a white chest, white paws and a rakish white goatee."
I burst out laughing....and laughing.
I was so thoroughly amused at the description of Bo, particularly the "rakish white goatee". Maybe it seems silly to you that I would laugh so hard at something so small, but it felt fantastic.
I clipped that particular paragraph out of the newspaper and have it pinned to the bottom of my monitor at work. Whenever I need a little boost, I read it and can't help but smile.
