Ben

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I'll never be alone
And you my friend will see
You've got a friend in me
Ben, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
There's something you should know
You've got a place to go
I used to say
I and me
Now it's us
Now it's we
I used to say
I and me
Now it's us
Now it's we
Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben
Like Ben
Like Ben

Michael Jackson

Now it's us, now it's we.

That's sweet. I'm going to go play with my gerbils. :)
AnnieAngel said…
Hehehehe. I've had two different rats called Ben. Give your gerbils a nuzzle for me. :)
neon said…
They run from me. :(
AnnieAngel said…
They flee from me, who sometime did seek me, with naked foot, stalking in my chamber.

:)
neon said…
Did your rats flee from you too?
AnnieAngel said…
No, that's part of a poem that popped in my head when you said that. My rats loved me. Ben 2 weighed 5 pounds. :) I miss him, he was a good friend. He would sit on my shoulder and nibble my ears. :)
neon said…
He sounds great. How old were you when you had the rats?
AnnieAngel said…
THe first rat I had I was just a little thing, a lady at the schoolyard where I was trying to convince the big kids to let me play with them had a paper bag and asked if anyone wanted a rat. I thought she said hat and said I DO! She gave me that bag and ran. My mother flipped until I told her it's Ben!!! Then she caved.

I was in high school when I get Ben 2. He was a black mongolian sewer rat. He lived for a long time.

I also had a rat called Sailor who was about to be fed to a snake at the pet store, until I almost cried and they stopped (i was an adult). I would get another rat, but they all die of cancer or something horrible.
neon said…
hahaha. That hat story is the best.

I thought dead had died about a month ago, she was lying down with her legs out, and not moving, and it wasn't her usual sleeping position. But then I poked her and she popped up. :)

I'm going to be sad when the poke does nothing.
AnnieAngel said…
Yeah. :( I always worry about my iguana too. He's older than most live to and he always looks dead.

She might have epilepsy or something, all the stock is so screwed with from experiments and whatnot. Bastards.
neon said…
Do you have a ferret too?
AnnieAngel said…
No, I had one of them attack me and lock on my hand once and I had to beat it against the wall to make it let go. I wanted to kill it but the owner wouldn't let me so I got mad and left.
neon said…
The owner should have at least given it a good beating for that.
AnnieAngel said…
I beat it off the wall really hard and it didn't even care. The people who owned it were pretty weird though, who knows what they did to it to make it crazy like that.

If you get one make sure it's even tempered.
neon said…
I'll remember that. :)

I think I better go to bed. I'm going to look for this movie when I go to the video store. :) Night Annie.
AnnieAngel said…
Pick up some tissue too. ;) Night Neon.

(((thank-you)))
neon said…
Blockbuster doesn't have it. That makes me want to cry. :(

It would be in the horror or drama section, wouldn't it?
AnnieAngel said…
It should be in the horror section. Maybe the library can order it for you?

I'd feel bad asking the cute redhead at the library to order a movie for me.
Shai said…
Mr. Shai has that movie. He says it is the sequel to Willard.
neon said…
I am glad it wasn't called Willard 2.
Shoelimpy™ said…
I saw part of Ben once.
AnnieAngel said…
We can watch it again.
neon said…
For some reason I half-expected Michael Jackson to be in the movie.
