When Cats Play

Have you encountered animals playing with each other? Have you seen your dog chasing your cat and then biting it, without meaning to hurt the cat? Or have you seen two monkeys in the zoo somehow acting up like two toddlers chasing one another? Like humans, animals also play, and like us, they find happiness in play. They play in various forms, but unlike us, their play somehow involve chasing each other, and running around the yard, or biting scratching on whatever is available to them in their immediate surrounding. So, don’t be shocked to learn that the new sofa you just purchased from the department store is filled with scratches from your cats. It is their type of play and they just love to do it! Say you are cuddling your cat and bringing it with you, as you visit your neighbor. All the while, what’s on your mind is a perfect chitchat with your neighbor about basically just anything under the sun, while you sip tea and eat cookie admiring the mid-afternoon surrounding in your neighbor’s porch, as you leave your cat to snuggle or just rest in one corner of your neighbor’s porch. Well, it could be a perfect scenario for a good afternoon to strengthen the bond with your neighbor, until you realize that your neighbor’s cat and your cat are studying each other, like two sumo wrestlers before they engage in a sumo fight. An intricate dance between the two of them is made, like a two flamenco dancers, that only them could understand. They somehow sniff to know the scent of each other, trying to remember if they’d ever met this feline in one instance, and they visually inspect one another as they walk in circles. And then, the ‘fight begins.’ One cat leaped to the other cat, showing off its huge physique, and trying to topple the other cat with its surprise leap. And the other cat leaped as well, maybe in surprise or its instinct just tells it to leap as well. But, are they really fighting? Or are they play-fighting? Well, they are play-fighting! If it shocked you the first time you encountered it, well it’s just play and its normal for cats to do it. It could be a way for them to respond in future encounters with other felines as well. It is their way to learn to socialize with other cats, and to develop bond that could be aggressive or sexual in the future. So, the next time you go pay your neighbor a visit and your cat just leaped or play-fight with your neighbor’s cat, just...

Face Off with Spiderman

What will your reaction be if ever the superhero that you have been idolizing all your life come face to face with you? Will you be shock and stun to face him? Or will you be very enthusiastic to ask for a picture with him? Well, if ever Batman, or Superman, or perhaps Captain America come in contact with you, you’d probably end up shaking and feeling all the butterflies in your stomach. It could be the very exciting, as well as nerve wrecking moment in your life. Could you bear staring at Superman’s angular and chiseled face? Or can you stand beside Batman as his cape flaps languidly while being whisked by air? No human being would be at the calmest state of mind when their favorite superhero becomes close with them. Such scenarios would for sure generate shrieks, squeal and a dozen of fainting episodes. It would for sure be too surreal to see them in person, even if they are still human beings just portraying a comic role for others to watch. Some of us really have difficulty distinguishing what’s real from reel that is why many of us would be very hyped and overwhelmed when such instance arrives. And it is not surprising to see some fans become too engrossed with the surprise and shock, that they would at times exhibit often very weird reactions. But, what if you come in contact with Spider Man and he is pointing fingers at you while he is busy discussing some important points that he wants to convey at you? Well, what if he will discuss to you what his very famous line means, “With great power comes great responsibility,” will you be at awe and admire him even more? Or will you just let all the talking pass your ear, and just admire at how beautifully crafted his seemingly silvery and fly-like eye is, and become very fascinated with how the sinew of his body fits perfectly to his red and blue skin tight suit? Such instances of seeing one’s favorite superhero are definitely surreal; it is unrealistic and unbelievable. There could be no words to describe such moment. It could be one that is fleeting, and all that you could ever do is just revel and take pleasure on such unbelievable moment. These type of scenario is definitely life-changing and it would forever be imprinted on the mind of the fan how unthinkable it is to come face to face with their idols, most especially superhero. Because of the unrealistic and superhuman qualities that superheroes possess, they become too glorified like gods in their own field....

A Lizard Smoking on Cloud Nine

There have been a lot of warnings from different health organizations that “Smoking is Dangerous to Your Health.” This is very true, that in fact, in some states, cigarette advertisements are banned. Rather, cigarette packs contain gross images of the effects of smoking; from pictures of people with throat cancer, to a picture of lungs that is as black as charcoal, to how debilitating the effects of smoking can be. Indeed, the aim is to make people veer away from buying cigars just by seeing the very alarming images. Though it is something that is effective, because it will make people think twice about buying cigarettes; chain smokers and those who are totally addicted to nicotine are not affected by such warnings. And some of them would even do something creative to pursue their desire of smoking. Have you seen pictures that somehow portray smoking as laughable or entertaining at that? Well, if you haven’t seen one, then you’d probably end up laughing in the middle of whatever you are doing just with the thought of seeing a picture of a gecko or lizard that is smoking. Well, picture the gecko/lizard or whatever species it is, somewhat floating in mid air, like he is in cloud nine, reveling on all the good memories he has had in all his life. Picture its face like he just won a hundred million lottery ticket, and you’d get a face that is totally high on whatever luck he has. And further imagine that the four legged, alligator’s skin-like, and gecko looking lizard is closing its eyes as it is puffing every single smoke that is coming from the cigar. It is as if the smoke coming from the cigar is giving him the ultimate high in his life. Clearly, the picture of the lizard (or whatever subspecies of it) is totally enjoying such luxury that he is experiencing. It can be likened to a child’s first taste of an ice cream. It is totally priceless! Though cigarettes are always portrayed in the bad light just so people would be deterred from smoking it, somehow what the lizard is trying to show, is to poke fun on the highly not-so-favored product for good commercial. It is as if the lizard is telling everyone, to live a little, and give the cigarette a break from all the negative publicity it is receiving for many generations now. What it is telling us, is that there is fun in everything, and even the pictures of cigarettes can ride on such fun. But, it doesn’t mean that smoking is funny nor is it highly advisable just to...
