Dr. Ivy Answers

Stan in Michigan asks,Dr. Ivy- Is it better to be feared or loved?

Dr. Ivy says,
The answer to your question, Stan, is entirely dependent on context. Feared or loved by who? If we're considering your relationship with a rattle snake, it's certainly better to be feared. But if it's a bunny, it's better to be loved. Unless it's the Monty Python bunny. If it's the Monty Python bunny it's you who had better fear and run away. RUN AWAY! When it comes to other homo sapiens, however, it's not so cut and dry. I find a little bit of fear and a little bit of love a good balance makes. In my three months of life I've learned that most of the time it's best to goo and gaa and giggle to be adored by my aquaintances, but every once in a while I throw a fit so that Mom Dad and Dog know who's boss. It's me. I'm the boss. Love me. Fear me.


Love,
Dr. Ivy
