New best friend, folks.
He’s is simple and basic. He is willing to follow me anywhere I go but is useful only when called upon in very specific situations. In fact, I cannot go without him.
He takes all the credit, but does so with my face tattooed quite firmly on his backside.
He listens carefully to exactly what I want and need, and does not give unsolicited advice. He is always right, but so am I, a fact which he certainly does not dispute.
There is no drama. He will proudly introduce me when seen with me. No one is vying for his attention.
He can be called upon at any hour of day or night. He will only venture out at the following hours, however:
Monday – Friday
10:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
9:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m

His name is Sam.
