“I have decided I do not want a Veiled Chameleon anymore. I would like a Jesus Christ Lizard instead.” – Peter
He has been talking about this chameleon for MONTHS. So I ask him why he changed his mind. I also added the appendage to the question, “When your wife agrees one day.” This is how I now answer pet requests. “Sure, you can buy a ball python, as long as your wife agrees one day.”
Don’t judge. I spend every day making them put things back outside that they “rescued” from the pond.
His reply, “I want a Jesus Christ Lizard because they walk on water.”
I answer, “That’s cool.”
He adds, “Besides, you wouldn’t let me have the chameleon because it is a hundred dollars and if Jesus Christ dies he was only thirty-five bucks.
I don’t need a “wing man” I need an assistant to spend the day reasoning with three little boys why we don’t live in a zoo. Oh, and to wash their turtle hands and check them for leaches…
Ok folks, this is a boy thing right? Please tell me this is normal or else I am going to have to buy them a pet store one day with their college money.
