It looks nice out there, but Mama says it’s too chilly
to leave the door open. The thing is I don’t like to be
out if I can’t get back in when I want so the door
must stay open. It sure looks nice out there
and here I am inside with no way out and if
I go out I will have no way in.
Life can be difficult.
I am so excited! I got to go outside on the balcony! Everyday I sit on my pillow and look out the big door at the outsidebut never actually got to go out there.
There are lots of things out there I have never seen or smelled before. And the air blows around. Mama says it’s called the wind. When there is wind there are so many smells coming from every direction I almost can’t stand it.
We are way up high.
Mama says if I jump off the balcony I will get very hurt if not killed. I don’t know what killed is but the way Mama says it I know it’s a bad thing. But I see birds jumping off our balcony and nothing bad happens to them. Some things are hard to figure out.
Mama says I make her very nervous and, until I am a big boy and I learn not to do that, I can’t be outside by myself. That’s ok cause I like to have her close to me because I am still a little guy, you know. She makes sure I am as safe as I can be.
Oh, and Mama says the 3 times and you’re in trouble rule does not apply on the balcony! It is much too dangerous to take any chances.
