I don't think I've shared my new little friend on the blog yet. I hadn't given it much thought until I was crafting the other night and found myself talking to him.
Wade and I don't have a pet. We had a fish for a few years, but sadly Harold is no more. We talk sometimes about getting a dog or a bunny or my first choice, a teacup pig. (Watch this video and tell me you don't want one now, too.)
Well, when Christmas rolled around this year, Wade kept dropping hints about a special friend I might be getting and someone to take care of. Imagine my surprise when I opened a package and saw this little guy.
I named him Geraldo. He's supposed to chirp and move his head and tail when I enter the room, but he kept startling me every time, so I just clicked the off button. Now he just sits on my desk in his knowing way. At first I thought it was such a silly gift, but he's become a nice addition to the room.
Under $10 and doesn't leave droppings all over the house? Sounds like my kind of pet. Maybe next year I'll get a motorized puppy that walks and does flips. Baby steps to the real thing, right?
Basically, I was a little blank on ideas tonight, so I shared my fake parakeet with you all. And since it's late, and I don't know how to end this post, I'll just say good night and hope you have a great weekend!
Any fun plans for the weekend? We're celebrating my niece's 2nd birthday where we'll get to play with their new real life bunny. Hopefully the rain will stay away and we'll have beautiful weather for their outdoor ice cream party.
Hope you have a great weekend:)
