    Alpacas say it's like "going to the dentist." They know they have to do it, but the whole time they're thinking, "is it over yet?"

    "It has to be almost over. I can do it. Only a little bit longer."

    "Okay, really... REALLY? THIS HAS TO END SOON."

    Ahhhhhh, but it's so necessary and worth it.
