So I've been doing this with my newfound monk-friend for a while now, and I think I'm pretty much certain of something: This guy has to have been a tiger in a past life. He just... he understands me, you know? And he always cooks his rice JUST the way I like it. Humans can be difficult, it's true, but I'm quite enamored with this one. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna let him play with my cubs someday, if I ever have any.
