Giving Them A Different Kind Of Earful

, , | Hopeless | June 18, 2016

(I’m often mocked for being a furry. In towns such as mine and the neighboring county where people don’t normally wear cat ears, I get quite a bit of ridicule. This adds to my already low self-esteem, and normally leaves me feeling rather glum.  My sister and I are walking through a bargain store; I’ve spent all day getting strange looks at the ears on top of my head, when we walk by a little boy and his mother.)

Boy: *whispering* “Mom!, I like her ears.”

Parent: *whispering* “Well, tell her that, not me.”

Boy: *looks at me with a goofy smile* “I like your ears!” *hugs me* “They make you look very beautiful!”

(I couldn’t help but smile for the rest of the day.)
