Her er det mye... rart. Og rørende. Og smått komisk. På en heller ubehagelig måte.
- Today was a first. I killed a member of the endangered species list. A California Desert Tortoise with metabolic bone disease.
- a one year old ferret with congestive heart failure. especially odd and uncomfortable because again, the family was in the room but one of the children was mentally handicapped and kept barking like a dog.
- very old rat. so sweet, so kind. he licked me. i kissed him. he smelled like disease and dying. his kidneys had probably failed. his paws were covered in blood. he made me cry. i whispered to him.
- iguana with calcium deficiency.
Og så videre. I det uendelige.
Selv sitter jeg her på forlaget og føler meg både trøtt og ukonsentrert. Jeg trøster meg med at jeg har sluppet å drepe noe i dag.
