    Not Really You See I Don't Mind Doing It to Others

    It's just when someone tries to do it to me that I flip-out. Especially threatening if it's a man weilding the long needle..  *shivers and chills all up my spine* I don't mind sticking really thick needles into dogs and cats. They have a different physiology anyway, it...
