Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.

Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.

Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.

Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.

Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.

because your saliva will make the chinchilla wet, and chinchillas can’t get wet. The end.


“it means he likes you,”
says my first grade teacher when
the boy pulled my braid
as if he hadn’t caused my tears and
i should be grateful, happy

“oh, but he likes you,”
says my teenage best friend
when i turned down the boy
who asked me to the Snow Ball
as if i should like him because he likes me
as if his feelings are mine and i
don’t have a choice

“that’s why the boys like you,”
says my college roommate
in a haze of smoke when i tell her
that i’ve never had a boyfriend and
i’ve always said no when they like me

(she kisses me and it’s sweeter than
when the boy kissed me under the bleachers
in the eleventh grade
and i kissed her back
because i liked her)

like you like me (via emrysdean)
