As you probably know, today is National Pastry Day.
Certainly multiple Courses of Action suggest themselves, and We feel it’s only fair to remind our Readers that they won’t be alone at the Bakery.
‘Your Inner Rhino’, defending our Readers’ interests.
Rhinos have unusual sleep patterns; none of this 8 hours a night business. We just go to sleep when We are saggy, and fidget forth when We are awake.
Also, We have other mental states, where the edges are fuzzy. Sometimes We are Asleep-ish, or Awake-ish, though the states are not identical.
Or Hypnotize-ish. Though just how that works is hard to recall, for the most part. Rhinos are pretty Suggestible.
Rhinos are dedicated to the concept of Friendship, of Appreciation and Respect and Encouragement shared with Us and other Critters as well. Near and far. Today and Tomorrow.
Makes Us feel good and makes them feel good. So much to be grateful for.
Every now and then a Rhino gets embroiled in an unpredicted mess. Not a catastrophe, but an awkward situation, a pivot point of tensions. A case where the Rhino is unprepared.
In these prickly moments, Rhinos question themselves. “What possessed me to be here at this time?”.
Ah yes, Education always comes at a price. Ask anybody.
We sometimes get questions about the mumbling We Rhinos are prone to. It is so common that We don’t remark upon it amongst ourselves.
Muttering is part of a running interior dialogue each Rhino maintains during consciousness, keeping track of developments. Sizing things up. Pondering the “what ifs”.
Generally speaking, there is no marked emotional component to mumbling. As We say, with Rhinos it is the Norm.
Early Onset Pumpkin Fever… it ain’t pretty, but it does come with its own sweet sense of Anticipation.
As Your Inner Rhino has mentioned before, Rhinos’ primary perception system is Scent. For many critters, sight takes the lead, but not for Us. We get our most Dynamic Information by Nose.
Unfortunately for YIR, this fact does not translate via electronic means. So We provide a sort of image of how it seems to Us.
We are the first to acknowledge the shortcomings of the attempt, but We feel We should get credit for the Effort. Yes, We do.
