I am one of those weird people that think bats are cute. I wanted a pet bat when I was a kid. I moved to a new city when I was 19 and I didn’t know anybody and was way too shy to make friends. When I would get bored I would go to a park and watch the bats swarm the bugs flying around the lamp posts. I’d probably have one today if I could.
We would have made great friends as kids. I too wanted a pet bat back then. Hell, I still do! They’re just too cute!
