Can you please stop killing me for a minute? I want to compliment your pet!
As I've mentioned before, I essentially have a split personality when it comes to perceiving some things in WoW. Take tonight's Warsong Gulch experience as an example. One of the horde players was a troll hunter named Freebeer, something that didn't stand out to me at all until I noticed his pet was a brown bat named andwings. (I later armoried him; he also has an old world yellow scorpid named ANDPIZZA.) One part of my brain processed how amusing this pairing was and wanted to spam a bunch of approval emotes. The other part of my brain said, "You idiot, he's trying to kill you. STOP CAREBEARING AND KILL HIM." The latter won out (though I don't believe I was successful; it was a bad game), but I very definitely wanted to do both things simultaneously.
