Ah well, her family already thinks I am an ass, so it is no problem.
Besides, much like some other naturalists, I prefer the company of animals to people. (except for cephheads, of course!) I hear where you are coming from, Chrono...public pressure can be tough, family pressure even tougher. Can't fault you for being nice !
Think of the sharks, though. No fins, dead in a matter of minutes, confused and not knowing what the heck just happened. Kind of like being plucked out of the blue, having your arms and legs ripped off, then dropped back into the city, flopping around. Yikes.
