Let’s talk for a moment about pets.
I personally am not a big fan. I don’t usually care for wet noses on my neck. Hairy couches require frequent vacuuming. I also like breathing an awful lot. Animals tend to make that simple act a bit difficult for me.
I grew up on a farm. You’d think I’d be more of a pet lover. I wish I was.
At this point in my life I really can’t handle the thought of bringing anything else into my home that I would need to take care of, feed, water, love, nurture, discipline, train, tell to be quiet…
And don’t suggest that we get a fish. They have tanks that get dirty and sometimes they float on top of water because they’re dead. And then you have to have fishy funerals. I don’t have time to hold a fishy funeral.
I know many of you feel differently about pets. I’m very much okay with YOU having pets. I know those of you with pets love ’em like crazy! I actually think it’s pretty neat that others love their pets so much. Way to go, animal lovers! Me not enjoying pets is simply my own personal opinion.
So tell me…do you have pets? Love pets? Kiss your pets on the mouth? What kind of pets do you have? Take a moment to brag on your pets.
OR are you like me and leave the pets to someone else?
