Good people don’t make “mistakes” like that. It was very malevoleant, cruel, and intentional.
Far be it from me to tell consenting adults what to do, but whenever I read about stuff like this I always wonder, how do you discover that this is your kink? Do you see dogs and think, ‘that looks chill’? Because I don’t have a kink (yet) and if I am missing out on something I want to know.
Also casually drop that you don’t intend to go into academia. I have a master’s and every damn interview they would seem convinced I was going to dump them for an academic job at any second. Once I pointed out a phd is required to be successful in academia in my field, it was like they suddenly took me more seriously.
Mice maybe? I'd say mice.
The most curious part is that I had some already cut up and available. This was just on the counter in case I needed more.
