Thomas's Dog

Studies have shown that patting an animal lowers your blood pressure. If I had time and energy, I'd get a fish, because there's not much space in Korean apartments. Attempting to pat a fish though, would probably raise the stress levels of both parties involved.

When I tutor Thomas these days, his dogs are usually in the room, scrounging about and generally wanting attention. This one will sit like this for minutes at a time, just looking at me as if it wants me to do something spontaneously entertaining. It's funny when you do something silly and unexpected in front of most dogs. They'll just stare at you with that look on their face that says "You humans have too much time on your hands."
