*Spoiler* in the full video he figures it out and manages to eat the cotton candy, a.k.a. candy floss internationally (learned something new), on the third try.
I almost cried real tears the first time I watched the original video clip. I couldn’t believe how moved I was by this, but after thinking about it it really boils down to this.
- This raccoon was given a good thing – cotton candy.
- The treat disappears suddenly; he isn’t even able it enjoy it.
- The raccoon has no idea what happened to this great thing he had.
As a young adult who is frequently getting kicked around by life, I. Get. It. That look of total despair as he searched for a treat that we all know has just dissolved into the water. That is real life. That is adulthood. Sometimes, *cough* often, things just go wrong in life and we have no idea why.
But just as often, we figure it out after 1 or 2 more tries and we get to actually eat our treats.
Here’s to figuring it out in 2016!
