Someone I know had two pet rats, Texas and Stinky. Texas lives to this day, but Stinky is dead. But before Stinky died, he lived in a cage with a tumor on his spine which paralyzed his back legs and he dragged himself around for months before passing to the next world. Stinky's owner didn't have the heart to put him out of his misery, but vowed that Texas would not have another companion. "It's too hard to watch them suffer," he said.
Somehow this seems to apply to me, but I'm at a loss to explain it. Maybe it's the damage, maybe it's the sad story, maybe I'm depressed for Stinky, Texas, and the owner. I never saw it, but I can imagine the cage all too well.

Thanks for the comments on the marriage post. I love Charles' advice about saying three nice things a day to your significant other. You can't really go wrong with that!
