The sudden death of my nephew’s pet hamster named “cheese” is still haunting him. Whenever we talk and I unconsciously mention the word “cheese,” his mood would immediately change. What once was a jolly kid now turned into a somber soul. He would sob and tears would form eventually in his eyes–an unfortunate sign of grief and sorrow. Well, we cannot blame my 10-year-old nephew because he has been with cheese for more than a year.
Truly, the untimely death of his pet has put him into a very melancholic state. Many days passed by and we still did not think he has moved on from the premature death of his animal friend. So we decided to take him to a pet shop nearby and told him to choose a new hamster. Surprisingly, he did not select one and hurriedly stormed out of the shop. It looks like he wants me to buy him a new musical instrument at guitar center marietta. My nephew reminds me that we must not dwell in the past but move forward and change our perspectives for us to continue on with our lives. Goodbye, cheese.
