I am sad to see 2010 slip into history since it was a very historic year for me. I am the first individual in all of time to have kept a New Year’s Resolution for an entire year! Yup, I did it!
My resolution last year was not to bite anyone. Can you believe I kept a hard resolution like that one? I’m telling you, there were times when it was touch-and-go, but I always pulled through in the end…or my intended target got away. Doesn’t really matter how I did it, does it? The important thing is that I did it. I did not bite anyone for an entire year. I don’t expect accolades but I certainly deserve them.
I spent many a long hour wondering how I could top last year’s resolution and do something just as impressive but not as hard. That was a difficult task, thinking. It is not something we capybaras like to do much. Finally I decided to dream about it and whatever happened in my dream would be my resolution (as long as it wasn’t too hard).
Believe it or don’t, my plan worked! I actually had a dream that I can make into a resolution. And it’s a wonderful resolution, if I do say so myself. Plus, it shouldn’t be too hard, at least not for me. I dreamed that my owner was working on her computer and I was watching her typing away like a mad woman. Can you guess what my resolution is?
I am going to write my autobiography!
I hear what you are saying, “Wow! That is a great resolution. I can hardly wait to read your autobiography but won’t that be hard? I mean, it’s not that easy to write a book.” I hear you. Those are excellent points. But you forget one important thing: I am a capybara. That means I don’t have to do the writing myself, I can have my owner do it.
Mind control is how I do it. Humans generally have weak minds that are very easy for an animal to control. The cuter the animal, the easier it is to control the human’s mind. You can see that I have no difficulty.
The only thing is my autobiography might come out sounding like a biography. I’m thinking it might be too hard to force my owner to think my actual thoughts. It is easier to get her to think thoughts about me. But you will all know it is my autobiography, right? My owner and I have already written one book together, Celeste and the Giant Hamster, and that was a piece of cake except that it had way too much cat stuff in it and not enough capybara.
