Urban Dictionary defines “spirit animal” like this:
In pagan religions and systems, a spirit animal or totem is meant to be a representation of the traits and skills that you are supposed to learn or have. Online, saying something or someone is your spirit animal is a statement that said person or thing is a representation of you or what you want to be.
In that, er, spirit, my spirit animal is my iPhone. Or, as I noted last night on Facebook:
I am the only person whose spirit animal is dumplings. #truefact
My spirit is confused.
Who or what is your spirit animal? Feel free to use either hip geek definition or the more traditional pagan one when answering.
