This past week I was again reminded of one of the reasons I like animals, nature, etc...
Animals are simple and uncomplicated. They do what they are supposed to do when they are supposed to do it. This is so different from people!
People play games with each other for a number of reasons. Don't get me wrong...I do like some people. But there are too many who are malicious, selfish, self-serving, inconsiderate, rude - and these are some of the nicer things I can think of.
Animals can bite you, true, but with most of them you know which are dangerous and which aren't. You know what to expect. People hide their bites behind words, acts, and thoughts.
Household pets are loving and accept you as you are. You would think your own extended family could at least behave as well as your dog.
I enjoy playing cards and board games. I despise the actions of people who play mind games with other people to benefit themselves.
As a matter of fact, I even take back any unkind words I have said regarding yellow jackets and fire ants. At least I know what their intentions are.
Anybody out there feel something similar? Or am I totally whacked?
