When I was a year old my mom hatched some chicks. I think uncooked chickens are horrible, but baby chicks are one of the cutest things ever.

So of course I wanted to hold one.

However, as soon as my parents let me hold one, I was overcome by its cuteness which translated into a desire to squeeze and squish it.

Don't worry though. My dad held my hand open so that I could not commit chickicide. Oddly enough, even with him holding my fingers I still strained to squish the chick.

It is troubling, but amazing cuteness still triggers this squish-response in me.

What is wrong with me?

This comic caused a lot of anxiety for me. I saw a chick, and then Young!Rachel, and I was afeared.

Even when I held your hands open so you couldn't squish the chick you started shaking, then tried to put your head down to put the chick in your mouth. Seems like yesterday...:)
