Happy Thanksgiving, ODNT citizens. I can think of nothing more appropriate for today’s blog post than this motivational message recently shared with me by my mother. She, along with all of my family and friends, is just trying to keep me calm and happy (a 24/7/365 feat as it is) in the days leading up to my surgery. Enter this curiously funny little message. Sure, it’s probably a viral email that some of you might have already seen … but I have not … so it’s what I’m serving up today.
This little creature hails from North Africa and is called the Naked Mole Rat. (Seriously, click the link. I’d love to include an actual image but there are mean people waiting to sue my pants off for using their pictures.) And as the saying goes, … just remember, whenever you’re having a bad day and feeling down about life, you could look like a wrinkly old penis with buck teeth.
Message received, my stomach-turning little friend. Message received.
I really hope there aren’t any naked mole rats reading this post. God, I would feel like such a jerk.
