My dog started whining early, a lab. He's outside these days but he used to be an inside dog, and even though he seems to like being outside, he's got this habit of barking and whining whenever the kitchen light goes on in the morning. Sort of saying, I think, "Hey, you people. I want in!"
Anyway, to drown out the barking, I grabbed my mp3 player. I accidentally clicked the wrong song, and Eric Benet was in my ear singing , "If You Want Me To Stay," an old Sly and the Family Stone song. I like Eric's version too.
The next thing I knew, I was bopping my head, and getting up. So much from trying to drown out the barking dog.
