Let’s be brutally honest. Tomorrow is Monday, and that means the blahs for most of us. Getting up early, facing traffic/public transport crushes/warm cocktails from the night before (hey, you never know), and so on. Basically, Monday morning means the rest of the work week dictating to you what your life will be until Friday eve. Mondays are bullies.
To help ease the whole trauma that Monday brings, we have this ridiculously super cute video of a teeny tiny baby otter being tickled.
Yes, tickled. Baby otter laughs, giggles (well, okay, that’s if otters can laugh and giggle, but this one seems like he can. He may be super otter, we don’t know. Yet.), puts his super cute little hands in his mouth to stop himself from being tickled to death. Because, let’s face it: for those of us out there who are extremely ticklish, being tickled is not fun. People think you like it because you’re all giggly, and all stoppy and all writhy. This never means we like it. For some reason, being tickled makes you giggle, but you can’t breathe. Seriously. You can’t breathe. It’s like being tortured in a Monty Python sketch on a comfy chair. Being tickled when you’re super ticklish is horrible.
However, this little otter seems to enjoy it. It’s also on a loop, with really terrible music. So, to cheer yourself up tomorrow turn the sound down low, and play the video. And try not to tickle any hapless or innocent bloggers you may see around.
