Buddy and I fell asleep looking at the stars, enjoying our last day together before he had to go. Today Buddy was leaving to visit his cousins in Nairobi, and go native in the African grasslands for a while. I was pretty jealous…I wanted to send him off right, so I made his favorite breakfast. Cookies on pizza, we called it the pizookie. After breakfast we went out for a scoot. We spent the whole day whippin and saucin and yumpin. It felt like it all went by in a blink. But it was almost 6:00, almost time for Buddy to go.At 6:00 we said our goodbyes and I lifted him into the mailbox. He would be with his cousins in 24 hours, we were both sad but happy, sappy.After the mail truck came and Buddy was off, I went for a twilight drift. Getting sideways seemed to numb my sorrows. I didn’t have much idea what I’d do without my Buddy, but I guess I’d just have to turn the 6 upside down.
