Critter

Do you like dogs?
Most people do, right?
Dogs are nice and cute and warm and loving.

Like, just look at this guy…

Look at him! Such a good boy!

How can someone not love him?

See, Miyu loves him…

So, looks like Little Luka has a date this Valentine’s, and I don’t.

Let us take a moment till that sinks in…

Anyway, what was the point I was going to make? Yeah.

Meeting someone new, and not sure what you think of them? Just talk to them about pets. If they make a face, you know they are not worth your time.

I guess I could give you an elaborate reason to support my hypothesis, but do you really need one? It is just the truth, you know.

Search your heart, you know it to be true.

Word of the Week #83:

Cataclysm

Who likes change? I don’t.

What is there to even like?

Let alone the big stuff, I struggle to even tolerate small changes in the weather. The very thought of buying a new phone or laptop or vehicle is enough to make me hyperventilate.

Of course, I have no money and cannot afford any of those things, but that is beside the point…

Now, we did talk a few weeks back about the changes a person undergoes, in order to reach greater heights, and that is obviously a different thing altogether. I don’t exactly love it, but I do understand and appreciate it.

However, there are certain changes that seem far less benign, and I count myself lucky for never having had to endure any of them. Now, I am still only thinking about things like switching schools or relocating, both of which appeared at the horizon at certain points in my childhood, and we somehow managed to evade both these looming disasters.

These days, however, I am living my life a little beyond my comfort zone, and experiencing these changes, albeit second-hand.

And, of course, my life is still enviably comfortable, so…

Nonetheless, a new chapter has begun. Our brave protagonist finds himself stripped from the warmth of his childhood home, into a mysterious land filled with unspeakable horrors.

Let us see how his story pans out.

Stay tuned for more…


PS: You see, ‘unspeakable’ because, well, cats cannot speak.
