We Can't All Be Rattlesnakes

  • If you’ve ever thought about what it might be like to be your pet, try Crusher’s story, the tale of snake held captive in a young boy’s bedroom.

Remember Syd in Toy Story? The boy who abused toys? Remember, Syd straps Woody and Buzz to the rocket?  The boy in this story reminds me of Syd. I really would not want to be one of his pets.

The boy’s name is Gunnar and he has captured Crusher because he wants to watch her eat mice. Gunnar gets mad when Crusher refuses to eat. Crusher is determined to escape despite the warnings given to her by other captive creatures in Gunnar’s room. When he gets bored, Gunner forgets to feed the animals. In their view, the only way out is dead.

Crusher is determined to break that cycle and studies the human that has captured her to strategize a way out.

It’s always good to think about things from another person (or animal’s) perspective. As Crusher says,  “Humans give me the creeps. Theyare so slimy.” Crusher will remind you to get up and go feed those goldfish and take the dog for a nice long walk. Those pets can’t talk, but if they could, they’d probably sound a lot like Crusher.
