Making Bad Things Cute

There's probably a good government job in that. Making really scary things cute so that people are a little less on edge. Well, I do that in my head all of the time, like a skin I put over the world so that things have giant eyes and big smiles and would never hurt you. At work, in our famous all-staff meetings in the basement we learned that someone had found a couple of bed bugs in the building. After wanting to hurl, I quickly sketched out the bed bugs I could mentally handle co-existing with.
