I love this Erik Encounter. It may be short, but it’s sweet! Check out the video at the end.
I gave a maneki-neko, one of those cheesy Japanese waving cats (about 6 inches / battery ran), to my partner for the Holidays. I had bought a very cheap one, but I pulled it apart to spray it in mate black to make it look nice, because he wanted one like that forever. After giving it to him, it has been on a side table waving away next to the sofa. Last night I reached to get something in that side of the sofa (not on the table) and the little paw stopped right at that very moment. I thought the battery died or the cat broke because I pulled it apart days before, and I figured, Oh well, I lost 5€. But no, I moved its little paw and it started back again. The next morning it was still doing working properly, but I did find odd that it had stopped the night before at the precise moment I was looking at it.
When it happened, I immediately thought Erik had something to do with it. That he finally made himself known to me because in the previous days I’ve yelling at him in my car saying: Talk to me, man, talk to me!!!!
He finally did. Thanks buddy!
