Do you know that feeling when someone is glad to see you and then at the last second they see something that makes them even more excited?
I know that nothing is meant by it. It's like being excited to go to the movies but finding out there is a carnival in the parking lot. Carnivals are rare and the movie house is always there. But when the carnival leaves you won't notice it much and are very happy the theater is still there.
Still, when this happens, it is better when it is for a sensate being.
Of course people are happy to see Sebastian. Not only is he a rarer treat he is MUCH furrier and affectionate than I am. Plus he has that tail thing going.
Last week Transitional Deacon Joe made a return visit to St. Sebastian. One would think a movie star or something stepped on to the property.
But I get it. I was excited also. Who wouldn't be. The vast majority of the time people are generally glad to see me so the key is to accept these moments with patience and grace.
