I know I’ve shown great love towards otters and sea turtles, but I think we should talk about the one creature I love best of all: The Great White Shark. When I was three, I walked in on my mom and some friends watching Jaws, which I was not supposed to see because it was too scary. Instead of being scared I thought it was probably the coolest thing I’d ever seen, I decided then and there that I wanted a great white shark as a pet, like Flipper, but significantly more awesome. I mean, we lived right by the ocean, why couldn’t I have a shark that would follow me around whenever I went to play on the beach?
Perhaps you have a sense now of what a weird little freak I was.
