the dismissive send-off
I think I've mentioned here that the Lotus Bud is taking a nature course at a local park. She and I both love this class. She loves the activities. I too love the sorts of activities in that class but I also love dropping her off and spending two hours chatting/knitting with a friend. Lately though the Bud's been giving me the send-off, a dismissive little gesture to get me leave and leave quickly. At first I was a bit shocked but not bothered, not one bit. I hope this is an indication of her need for adventure and independence and not a sign of embarrassment about me, her moog. Jeez! I really hope that's not it!
