what’s your leash?

my dog likes to eat her leash — while we are walking

i want to be mad at her but i realized I’ve been chewing at my leash all my life

wouldn’t you tug at the leash that led you around?

moreover – why aren’t we the leader and the led? So often someone or something else leads us and we follow or try to — and like my adorable and conflicted dog we think we can run farther and faster than we can and that leash just forces us back into a line and path we didn’t necessarily agree to.

so I ask you dear reader (if there are any of you) – what is your leash?
