Looks can be deceiving


I've been looking at Celeste's "mad face" for the past few days, and I feel bad that it doesn't reflect how she is most of the time. It doesn't show her giggling as we go down the stairs to play outside. It doesn't give anyone a clue as to how she bats her eyes, grins like a fool, and stumbles over her own feet as she's oogling the lovers that sit kissing on the bench on the bike path. And there's no hint of the happy go lucky gal that runs into a lamp post because she's busy rubber-necking while making eyes and flirting with the school kids walking behind us. No trace of the smooth mover as she steals a sniff of a passing grocery bag or briefcase, of the laughing pup that leaps into our arms when we open the front door, of the dog that throws herself at the unsuspecting passer-by who calls to her, just to get a look at those ice-blue eyes...and I mean ALL of herself. Call Celeste, and you've got her - every bit of her, all in your lap at once. She's an outgoing, no-holds-barred kinda gal.

Actually, if not for the camera, she would never have a mad face at all. I can't figure out why she's so adverse to having her picture taken.

Perhaps she's mad because your hands are occupied with the camera. She knows that ear scratches and picture taking are mutually exclusive.

Perhaps she thinks that the mad face is the one you want for the camera? Sort of like the little boy who always pulls his mouth sideways on picture day.

Yes, she must think she's giving you her good side. She is just as cute as she can be, even with her mad face. You need to have O take the picture while she's in your lap or running down the stairs with you.

Perhaps he was a witch in a past life. She's very beautiful anyway.
