_ Jeff’s older brother always owned the coolest pets. He had a colony of termites, a pack of seahorse (or seahorses – I’m not quite sure,) and a three-legged goat called Sam, just to name a few. Jeff was jealous of his brother’s ability to source interesting animals, but there was no way he could compete; he was only six. One day in science class Jeff learnt something that would change his entire outlook: if a bee was frozen in the freezer it would come back to life when returned to room temperature. All Jeff had to do was freeze a bee, tie a thread of cotton around its neck, and he would have the perfect pet; he could even take it for a walk, or a fly. Jeff was almost stung several times as he attempted to trap the bee, but he was now waiting patiently for the tethered insect to defrost. Jeff was startled by the first buzz as the bee snapped out of the coma. He watched with anticipation but was disappointed as the bee made no attempt to escape; it was too busy trying to release the threat from its neck. Jeff wondered how he would react if he had been cryogenically frozen and brought back to life with a noose around his neck. He was sure his first thoughts would be of escape; he would only worry about the noose once he had reached more familiar surroundings. Jeff watched the bee until it was too exhausted to move, then his brother rocked up with an iguana.
