There once was a mongoose who got engaged to a cobra on a whim.
He seemed very fun-loving, with a raw hypnotic sexuality.
Also, the mongoose was on the rebound, and had intimacy issues.
The mongoose had alienated a lot of her friends during her last relationship by constantly whining about it, so she had no one to tell her, “this is a bad idea.”
I don’t think she would have listened anyway. The mongoose tended to cut off anyone who disagreed with her.
But anyway, the mongoose made up elaborate justifications about why it was a perfect pairing, and the cobra told his friends that he’d finally found the girl who would provide him with “balance.”
He hadn’t had many long term relationships, just flings. Generally, with mice.
They ended badly.
Yeah, you could say he just overpowered them.
I drank a champagne toast at their wedding.
Many happy returns of the day.
