Monty Python's Petting Circus

Peter and David have spent days now cuddling and petting Tom. Today, I thought they might be in the mood for something even slimier. A nearby Reptilian Exhibit did the trick just fine.

I hate snakes, lizards and other things that go ick in the night, but Angie was giving out chores today like a woman who just gave birth and came home to six days of no housework being done, so I thought it would be best to boogy out of town for a cooling down period.

Some women have Post Partem Depression, but after leaving me at the controls for over a week, it was a bit more like Post Partem Aggression.

I picked up Brian and Dalia as the ladies did silly things like recovering from giving birth and painting. Angie doesn't paint.

The exhibit was nice, in a 'tattooed-gypsies-ripping-me-off' kind of way. I really wasn't aware that spiders are now classified as reptiles; silly me thought they were arachnids.

The picture here cost us fifteen bucks because we had two animals in it. Thankfully, they did not charge us extra for our own kids.

After the Zoo crew met Crocodile Dundee and the Gypsy Kings, we headed out for some much needed ice cream. Keeping with tradition, the kids SCREAMED for ICE CREAM the entire ride back. By entire, I mean the whole freakin' way. I'm sure it's cute for elderly people who have hearing problems, but Brian and I are still in our prime, despite the reports coming out of

After getting the kids doped up on natural sugar highs, we thought it would be wise to return to our respective homes and unleash the wild ones on the domesticated ones. It was fun to watch, but I have to say that a 7-day old doesn't really put up much of a fight.

At one point, David walked over to Mama and asked her why Tom was drinking from her arm. I would say that David either needs to learn more Geography or more Anatomy. At least after today, one thing he will not need is a lesson on reptiles. Or spiders. Or big hairy gypsies with tattoos.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed to the reptile show.
David: When I play mit you and Peter and Dalia and Brian.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When by the reptile show no drink there was for me to drink.
David: When we saw that Gruffalo.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with David my phone calls to David to me.
David: When we hear the Sharky song.
