Pet scorpion

"There's a scorpion on your shoulder" says a guy to another on the bus. "I'll swat him - don't move".
"Oh no no" he replies "he's my pet".
"Yeah. He's not real affectionate but he's good company. I can take him everywhere."
"Doesn't he sting, man?"
"Well, he won't if I respect his space."
It takes a full ten minutes for me to realize that everything I struggle to learn about love I could learn from that man and his pet scorpion.
