So my mom calls me up and says "I just saw the most depressing episode of Pet Psychic."
Coincidentally, she called me last Sunday to tell me the same thing; the difference being that last week, it was the first episode of the series, and apparently, just as depressing.
Mena: Why do you watch the show if it just upsets you?
Mom: I don't know. It's just so sad. I cried during the entire show. There was this raccoon whose mother was killed in a freak logging accident. And the little raccoon witnessed it! And now, it never wants to leave rehabilitation.
Mena: You know this is how the show works. Do you really expect a reading to be happy and positive? "Oh, I'm such a happy dog, I'm so spoiled. Keep up the good work." That's not going to happen.
Mom: I know. And there was this miniature horse...
Mena: I don't want to hear it.
The thing is, I'm just like my mother. If Ben and I actually got Animal Planet as a part of our digital cable package, I would subject myself to these same depressing segments on what animals (often abused animals) are thinking.
Why? Just to know that they are thinking.
