Every time you go away...

..you take a piece of me with you.

I love that song. Hall and Oates, circa 1980. Later covered by Paul Young in 1985 and was used quite nicely in the movie "Planes, Trains and Automobiles."

Pet has now been gone for seven sleeps, and will be gone for another five sleeps until we are together again. And when we do get back together, on Sunday, June 9, it will be for a brief amount of time. Because no sooner does she get back in town that I leave town early the next morning for a work related trip and will be gone for another week.

We just don't do that well without each other. Pet is on a family vacation and as is the case with any family vacation, there is stress, and pet's best way to deal with stress these days is with submission to be in bed. For me...I don't know. I don't sleep as well when she is gone. Bed's too big without you, as another great song goes, and as I told her today. The water that I pour for myself at night and the coffee I make for myself in the morning just doesn't taste as good as what L brings to me.

Pet, Kasey Kaseem is no longer with us, but nonetheless, here's your long distance dedication.


  1. I can only imagine how difficult it may be with out your beloved pet. I get super depressed when im away from my Daddy. But once everything is back to normal for us its always worth while for my submission gets deeper. Hang in there Sir.

  2. How wonderful to miss one so much! I know that time apart is difficult, but to in a tangible way be reminded of what you provide for one another is a gift. Hope you are finding ways to stay connected in the interim.


  3. I have a hard time when Sir and I are apart too. We both hate to be apart. We don't spend a lot of time away from one another but when we do, I get pretty lonely. I won't even sleep in the bed without him, I stay on the couch when he's gone. However, when he gets home, we always have a wonderful time reconnecting.

  4. The only one who likes it when Sig O. leaves is the dog, who then gets to sprawl out with his pillow. Sometimes I think she's plotting something devious to take over the bed-- she gets that look in her eye.

    And, I agree-- it's a great song. When I was a kid I thought the lyrics were "take a piece of meat with you."

    Hang in there. :) XO AO
