Diary #641

I find it rather sweet that so many people are so enchanted by our kunekune pig, Cicero.  Everyone who comes to Sunset wants to meet him and even take pictures of him; people text me to ask how he’s doing and to tell me to give him a scratch for them.  This picture was taken last Wednesday at the request of a reader who felt it had been too long since I shared a picture of him, and my friend Sophie is so enamored of him that if I send her a picture she’ll respond with, “I love that pig!”  I think part of it is simply that city people find the idea of having a pig as a pet novel and funny all by itself; it’s not that uncommon in rural areas, and in fact I had neighbors in both Oklahoma and Washington with pet pigs themselves.  But I think another part is that he’s such a comical little fellow; not only does he look like a dirigible with legs, he also has a face like an anime character and usually emits a constant stream of little oinks and grunts as he walks.  He’s gentle, friendly, social, and curious, and has a lot of personality.  And of course, a pig is not exactly the knd of animal one expects a harlot to keep as a pet.  So all in all, I reckon it isn’t all that surprising people are fascinated by him; I simply didn’t expect this degree of fascination.


I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so very much!
