What does she want? A kitten? Yet another puppy? Maybe something more manageable like a hamster or parakeet? Nope. She wants a seal. She says that they will sleep together in the same bed together and that she would love her and take care of her so very well that I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing.
My more practically minded son has a better grasp on size, food and poop, which I appreciate. He even reminds her that they eat penguins—a collective favorite animal in my home. But she will not be dissuaded. As a last plea, she offers to make it an outside pet.
What do you think? Should I get a seal?
