How Global Warming Affects us ALL

In my yoga room at the club, I face out to the 20 giant flat screen TV's. I generally ignore them unless they're set on American idol or something, in which case it's MEDITATION TIME for the whole class and TV time for Moi (I've still retained my VAST french, as is evident!)

I swear I only in Idol season RARELY or top chef do this!

But last night they were doing SOME show on the environment and they showed that damn polar bear scene. You know the one, where the mamma polar and baby are on that ONE TINY patch of ice and the mommy jumps off, and the baby looks all confused and jumps off too, and it SO heartbreaking because it suggests that they're losing their ice housing to global warming. And I just wanna cry every time.

I swear they played that one scene about 5 times while I taught, and I started getting choked up. During class. The baby polar bear looks like Mick, sorta. So when I drove home I start BAWLING for the state of the animals in the world. And how SAD it would be if polar bears became extinct. And how companies test on animals. And the Jaguars that are hunted in South America and how the baby jaguars are a big prize for hunters...SO SO SAD!!!!

And then I got home, hugged my dogs, and took a Lexapro.

The end.

I hate to say that I'm with Kristina on this one. I even went back and re-read it. It should be (is) so sad, and yet I'm grinning the whole way thru.

You know the folks with the remote controls are just messing with you to see how much you can take...
