Thanks for reading down to here. It’s late, and I should be getting to bed.

But I will write this in – when I feel sad, I pat a nice animal, and it makes me feel better. Other people, especially people who get angry, should do it too. Unless you are allergic. Don’t pat an animal if you have an allergy. Especially if you are already angry. Angry people with allergies can be a real pain in the bum…
