LJ Idol, Topic 5: Bearing False Witness

There are two parts to my entry today. Because of that, I've placed them behind a cut.

The first is about a recent news item which many of you may have heard about. In case you have not, Ice-Skating Bear Kills Russian Circus Hand

Black is the color of my SOUL (soul is in blackletter calligraphy)

Panel 1: picture of little Tea with Child Psychologist
When I was eight, they made me go to a child psychologist.
Psych: YOU ARE SPECIAL!
Tea: (thinking) Oh God, no.

Panel 2: Picture of Psychologist's shoes. One has a much thicker sole than the other.
She had scary shoes. I know now that she just had different-sized legs, but at eight, it was scary!

Panel 3: Picture of Psychologist sitting in a chair while Tea is holding an anatomically-correct male doll with an erect penis. Tea looks uncomfortable.
She made me talk about my feelings.
Psychologist: How does the naked daddy make you feel?

THEN, ONE DAY:

Panel 4: Psychologist, looking excited
Psychologist: Next week, why don't you bring in your favorite toy?

Panel 5: Tea looks wicked. She rubs her hands together.
Tea: Okay!
Tea: (thinking) Finally, Vengeance is mine! Take that, Naked Daddy!

Panel 6: Headless Toy Bear
I had this bear whose head could pop off very easily.

Panel 7: Tea is holding headless bear. Psychologist looks concerned.
Tea: This is my bear. He reminds me of my own mortality.

Panel 8: Tea, holding bear and grinning.
Tea: His name is "Momento Mori"

Panel 9: Tea, looking innocent.
Tea: That means, "remember you will die."

THEY NEVER SENT ME BACK AGAIN.
