To Be a Dog

I put on my jacket because it’s there and then take it off a few minutes later because it’s summer and even inside it’s too hot for a winter jacket. Then I forget again four minutes later and put it back on, only this time I keep it on instead of repeating the process. To be a dog must be like this, outside inside outside inside just picking one to end the dilemma for the moment.
