A Little Pet

 The kids were delighted to go see their friends' pet yesterday. What was it? Oh, just your regular, friendly 'ol pet. Or maybe not. It wasn't a dog. Or a cat. Or a fish. Or a guinea pig. Or a turtle. Or an iguana. Nope, they had a... rat. And the kids could not wait to hold it.

 I tried not to show my expressions as they experienced the wonder of holding a rat, feeling its whiskers brush their fingers, watching its ears twitch...

 ...or letting it climb up on their heads. Both kids had to do this. I just kept my mouth shut and pressed the shutter button.

This might not have been my idea of a good time, but they definitely thought it was.

And with that, have a good day!

Rats make wonderful pets, if you can just get past their unfortunate propensity to urinate and defecate on you when you are holding them.
