When you make a new friend, and you really like them, be careful how hard you slub them................I’m not embarrassed 😳 -❤️Gilby .
Oops! Sometimes slubbing aka scent marking gets a little crazy. Marking his territory with a little slobber and his scent gland. We’re often asked ‘does slubbing “smell?”’ No, it doesn’t. Gilbert has a sternal scent (on his chest) gland that’s orange and has a mild musk, but is not strong to the human nose. Those that have met Gilbert and the Snack Lady, can vouch, his scent is very soothing. 🥰
Opossums use this behavior in the wild to mark territory. This sends a chemical communication to other opossums, “hey this is mine,” “I was here,” or “hey ladies.”
... Ever been unable to sleep ... Wait. No one really gives a shit.
I had the best philosophy a few years ago I lost it though.
I started giving a shit again about what everyone thinks but the everyone are all the chatter in my head... Maybe back then I actually gave a rats ass even though I acted like I didn't, or maybe I had some kind of drive I wanted to be something, someone.
Now I'm just entertaining myself, stuck in quicksand but enjoying the slow descent. .
Funny how we cling to pain. We don't want it but when it comes to letting it go, we hold on thighter than ever. .
