This week we encounter just such a monster...
The Little Tickling Monster is a hexo-armed abomination designed to do one and only one thing, to tickle. Happy vibrant orange coloration, 6 super-ticklish hands and a big smile, the Tickling Monster is responsible for each and every act of tickling that takes place on the lower 3 dimensions of incarnation.
As we all know tickling makes you laugh, but hidden behind this external display of happiness is an experience of inner torment and squirming.
Earthworms are meant to squirm, but when the Tickling Monster is around no little human being is safe.
There are only 4 things you can do if you find yourself set-upon by the Tickling Monster.
- Scream - man or woman, young or old, this is one of those situations where screaming always helps. (If you find yourself laughing too much and cannot breath skip step one and move on to points 2 to 4.)
- Squirm - if you can try and squash or disable one of the tickling hands.
- Run - far and fast
- This, the 4th step was developed by the KGB late in the cold war -the tickle back - it seems so obvious that few ever use this defense. If you find yourself being tickled by any monsterous being simply tickle them in return, trying to tickle harder and more ticklish-er. The horrendous experience of being tickled back will cause the Tickling Monster to turn and flee...
Sometimes the best defense against love and laughter is happier, bigger love and laughter.
With the truth at your side no little monster stands a chance.
Check-in next Friday
