I Want A Pet

Sadly, the roommate does not. Conversations like this take place on a regular basis:

Me: Look at that kitten! It is so cute! Kitten!
The Roommate: It looks like a rat.
Me: But it is so teeny, and fluffy, and...
R: Rat-like.

The roomate does not like animals. Even cute ones like this:


My new scheme is that I need a trained monkey. I asked my supervisor if we had room in the budget for one. She just laughed. It was not a joke. I actually want a trained monkey. Any idea what one of those things run you these days?

You can have the cat that brought me that little present the other night.

Orie- I wish. The roommate doesn't like cats. Neither does CJ.

Aunt L.- wow, that is pretty horrifying. Maybe I don't want a pet monkey.

Feh on cats, to cats and anything to do with cats.
