There comes a point in every poler's life when they realize that they're spending more time with their pole family than their own. I admit. I see my pole friends more than my my non-pole friends.
It's good to come off the metal rod once in a while and go spend time with those who miss you. Aww, look at all my sad fur babies. :(
If you don't get it the reference, then you haven't seen "How I Met Your Mother." tee hee
