While my ribs were all messed up I did realise I was being far more solitary than is usual for me but it was tough to find the energy to rise above the pain and despondency and do much about it. As a consequence my mind spent months in neutral at best, reverse gear at worst. My ribs have finally stopped being such an issue over the past few weeks which has enabled me to socialise more regularly and to do the sort of normal, everyday things you take for granted when you’re not all despondent and in reverse.
I like people, especially my friends. The human race as a species is an arse but there are plenty of good individual examples of humans for me to not want to destroy the earth with a massive flood. Also, I’m not allowed to do this sort of thing because I didn’t pass my god exam. You’re only allowed to purge populations when you’ve created them in the first place and you only get to do that if you graduate from god academy. Them’s the rules, folks, nothing you can do about it.
Today I ate a wonderful lunch and spent the afternoon with one of my favourite families in all the world. They have a little puppy now, a twelve week old bundle of lovely who liked licking my hands and face and also nibbling my fingers. It must be awesome to be a puppy, even when your humans are training you to be less finger-nibbly. Puppies don’t have to go out and earn money and people find them very nice to cuddle. I might turn into a puppy if I can work out how. Although thinking about it, with my levels of laziness and contempt for the majority of other beings, I’d probably make a much better cat.
