"A ant goes to the mall. The ant is like why the hell am I here. The ant is on the sidewalk. The ant is carrying their heart around on the side walk. The ant is kicking a pebble all the way down the side walk. The ant is thinking about all the ways the ant can nice, the ant loves people and wants to be nice. The ant is telling a room of people why season 4 episode 20 of gilmore girls is the best episode aside from the fact that smoke weed lol. The ant keeps forgetting. The ant keeps thinking that they’re small and not that strong. The ant keeps forgetting. The ant keeps forgetting that generally ants can carry up to 100x their body weight. The ant keeps forgetting that they’re carrying their heart around on the sidewalk and that their heart is over 1,000x their body size. This is because the ant has a big heart. The ant is kind. The ant is good. This is ant by elijah pearson." -alli simone defeo
