Jennifer asks: Um, if you could be any animal what would you be?
Answer: When I was a child, I automatically answered “a lion” because I loved that mane of fur. Now, as an adult, the question is so much harder to answer because I am aware of lifespans, the drudgery of finding food and the danger of being hunted by someone higher on the food chain.
I think I’d choose to be a rat. Rats are smart and cute, if you overlook that whole disease-spreading tendency they have. They are also so hard to exterminate, which has to be a plus, if you’re the rat. They can go almost anywhere, climb anything, explore nooks and crannies. Yes, I think I’d like to be a rat.
