If I had extra 2 hrs in a day, how would I spend it? I thought about this for several days and I never got valid answer until...Note: This post is a submission to the IndiBlogger-Surf Excel Matic contest, “If you had two extra hours in a day, how would you spend it?”.

It was late afternoon and I was working on my next manuscript. My eyes were glued to the computer screen, whilst my fingers typed the words that were racing through my mind. In came a small furball, carrying excitement which would light up the faces of all. She jumped and barked, trying hard to pull my attention.
“Go away, Lily!” I muttered, still not looking at her.
However, Lily remained unmoved. She sat on the ground, her eyes focus on me. She wagged her tail and made a soft noise, desperately calling for my attention.
“I am working, not now. We will play later,” I said with a hope that she would understand and go to another room.
This time she barked a little more loudly and I knew she was saying Look here please. I sighed and moved my attention on her. Sensing that my attention was now on her, she danced in happiness, wagging her tail in rhythm. I smiled and patted her back approvingly.
“Alright, I will give you a biscuit,” I said as I walked inside the kitchen. Not to mention, Lily followed me excitedly. When she got the biscuit, she ran to her favorite place (the couch) to eat it.
This is when I got the answer to the above question. My angel, who usually doesn't interrupt in my work, secretly wishes that I will spend some time with her too. If I get extra two hours in a day, I would devote it completely to my dog, who loves me selflessly. However, I also promise to spend some more time with her even if my clock reads 24 hrs, for she thought me to find happiness in small things. She deserves my time as much as I want hers.
