My latest obsession, my new favorite YouTube video genre, is animal ASMR. I've been so stressed out lately, what with the latest SCOTUS decisions, COVID still raging, the Jan 6 hearings, and on and on and on ad nauseam. So, to help me block out reality momentarily, I take breaks and watch animals eating things. Here are a few of my favorites:
A tortoise and guinea pig eating kiwi, the same pair eating strawberries, an opossum eating cat food, a hamster and guinea pig eating carrots, and even a quokka eating a cracker! And perhaps my favorite, a pitbull named Mr. Bounce, eating a variety of meats (plus tofu!?). He's a hilarious snarly snort-snooter. These sweet animals can't solve any of our world's problems. But they can help us ignore them all for a few minutes. Enjoy.
