Project 52: Under

Under just has a negative connotation. When you feel bad, you’re under the weather. When you owe more on something than it’s worth, you’re underwater. When you die, you get taken to the undertaker.

But under really shouldn’t be that bad.

After all, the song Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid puts me in a good mood. If you score under par in golf, you’re doing well. If you’re having exceptional luck, we say you’re born under a lucky star.

So under tends to be underappreciated.

You know who doesn’t underappreciated “under?” My dogs.

Chloe just loves to chew up dirty underwear. We still aren’t sure how she gets into the hamper to get it. (Don’t worry, I’m not posting any pictures of Chloe with underwear.)

Charlie loves to wallow under the pillows on our bed. That is, until it was announced “under” was this week’s theme. It’s like he understood I wanted a photo of him under a pillow, and he decided to underperform.

So I had to try to light a fire under him, but it wasn’t any use. I finally came under the gun and had to just do something, so I tried to stage a photo, and as you can see, it didn’t really work out that well.

This entire undertaking has gotten under my skin. But don’t worry. Bygones are bygones, and it’s now all water under the bridge.

I go to bed after writing this post, and what does Charlie do? He crawls under a pillow for the first time in a week!!
