Simply a "nine-year-old boy" :))) . It's the age when you torture ants to see
how long they'll survive, keep on kicking you little daughter, and laugh at
anyone who has braces. And adults just say: "children can be cruel you know" :))
Actually, I never quite did that. At my first ant killed, I was so horrified by
my act that I never killed any animal again (at least not willingly), even the
smallest ones. I don't even attack mosquitoes and the like, unless ordered
too :)) . But in this case, I think I was the one with a strange behaviour when
I was nine :)) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
