I had a hamster once when I was 6. He died when I was away camping w/ my family. I came home only to find that 'hammy' had tragically passed away in his little hamster tunnel.
My dad took me down to the beach where we buried 'Hammy' in a shoebox and made a cross out of sticks. We then sent up a prayer to hammy heaven asking for a safe journey for my deceased friend.
The next day I got a puppy.
Just wanted to say that Butchart Gardens is awesome.
I had a kick-ass hot dog there to go along with my afternoon tea service.
Plus, I got to see that fountain all lit up in different colors at twilight after listening to a string quartet.
Have you ever guessed somebody's gender wrong? There's no recovering from that. You just gotta move on, cause you ain't wriggling outta nothin'.
"Hey, excuse me, sir?"
"Okay." "Okay, bye... bye, human. Bye person. Nice to meet you, individual."
