"What THINGS do you like to STARE at?
February 10, 2019 8:44am CST
It was a funny Sunday today. As the usual thing, I need to catch up teaching online for this weekend. A young boy student rocked my world. For the reason that he was not focusing during the online class. I kept on nagging him and asked this question, "What things do you like to stare at?" He answered back, "I just stare at my homework for a long time." Finally, I got the answer without asking more questions about it. I knew that he is so pressured about doing homework even it is his winter vacation. It happens in China. For me, I love staring at my Cat Shadow. "How about you, guys?" "What do you like staring at?"

Well, I usually "stare" at my babies (my little walking sharks) although "staring" is not what I'm really doing. I'm actually playing with them. When I have time after feeding them I let them crawl onto my hands and take them out of their tank. Then I put them on a sheet of plastic (to keep my bedding dry) and play with them. (They squeak at me and chase after my hands. When they get tired, I lift them back into their tank. Usually they swim for a bit and then crawl out of the water onto their platform and want me to pet and hold them.) Uhm... if he's stressed about his homework, shouldn't you suggest something calming for him to "stare" at instead of the mountain of homework he's got to do? (Do his parents understand how stressed he gets?) I'm sure staring at Shadow is calming for you, Shavkat! *smiling at you*
It sounds like a nursery rhyme "Baby Shark." I am sure that you find the amazement when seeing them moving around. I haven't seen one though. I mean playing with such a pet. I find it interesting though. In China, parents don't mind about these things. For them, students need to have more homework. According to the old folks here, the educational sustem is quite hard as compared before. Shadow is definitely a clingy creature. By just staring at him, it made me feel like a father.

@Shavkat I believe you'll make a great dad one of these days, Shavkat! I'm working on a nursery rhyme featuring my babies for you. In the meantime, check out this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndbw7SQMCcQ This video is supposedly from Australia, but mine look like the walking sharks from Indonesia. (Mine are still only about ten inches long, though. I accidentally stunted their growth by keeping them in a tank that's too small for them. )
