And Stinkiness...

Life has stinkiness to sell, too. It comes at the price of two guinea pigs. Yuck. Anyone want them? They're going up on KSL or Craigslist in two weeks.

(I gave my kids two weeks to prove that they would
1. Take care of the guinea pigs without being prodded, cajoled, begged, or screamed at.
2. Actually show that they have some affection for said guinea pigs.)

Any guesses on whether or not they're meeting these criteria?

I used to love the first guinea pig (Butch), in a very shallow sense of the word love. But cleaning his cage week after week slowly zapped away the warm fuzzies. Now I just say hi to him when I dump his food in the bowl. He deserves better than that.

So what do you say? Want them?

Good selling job, huh?

I was cracking up while reading, cause for some reason, I pictured someone saying the same thing about their husband.... the part about the warm fuzzies going away after cleaning up after them so much - ha ha!! Bye bye little critters.... have fun in your new home!! (lesson learned by the kids? probably not until they are really gone!)

Hey, if no one seems to want them online, you could see if a preschool or daycare would want them. We have guinea pigs in the USU Children's lab and the kids love to have them and play with them. I agree with you - they are stinky creatures.

I do not want your guinnea pigs. I'm sorry.

But that picture of Ben is priceless and that poem is lovely.
