I'm Large and In Charge
...because now I'm a Large Mammal in the TTLB ecosystem. Hmmm. I rather liked being a 'roo of the Maurading Marsupial class. What kick!
So what shall I be now, and how large is large? Elephant large? Camel large? I just don't see myself as an elephant or a camel.
I'm thinking kitty. Choosing an appropriate cat presents far more difficulties than one would imagine. Naturally, I have always admired lions. But they've got that whole harem thing going on, and I'm just not into that. Mountain lions are cool. They can purr. They, however, don't roar, so I'm not sure that's the way to go. Tigers are awesome but...orange? Puh-lease! Jaguars, on the other hand, are very strong and are supposed to be the fiercest of the cats. I have always considered my love for my children to be "fierce". Therefore, jaguar it is.
Then again, in the canine family exists a very special dog. They are especially beautiful yet built like little tanks. Friendly and gentle enough to be utilized as children-warmers on cold nights, they are brave enough to stand up to polar bears in defense of their people. While I'm not particularly fond of cold, they have gorgeous coats to keep themselves warm, and their fur has certain mysterious self-cleaning qualities. I'm speaking of Samoyeds, of course. I could be a samoyed. Or rather, I'd like to be a samoyed.
Goodness me. I just can't decide between these two phenomenal animals. Any thoughts?
update: yes, i went in and added the "not" that i was missing before. for pete's sake, why didn't anyone tell me i'd dropped a word?
