The Bribe

Today was a rough day for both Keith and me. I have no idea why it was so rough, but by the end of the day we both just needed to cuddle. We curled up on the couch and I held him and he held his bear, and we just snuggled and watched Peter Pan together, enjoying the closeness and security, awaiting the arrival of our knight in shinning armor.

Jeffrey walked through the door and saved the day.

He took one look at the two pitiful figures huddled together wanting to fly away with Peter and Wendy, and announced a much needed trip to the pet store to lift our moods.

I untangled Keith from my neck, ignoring his protests, and we loaded him in the car, screaming and tearfilled as he was. We took a little trip to Pets Mart and Keith had so much fun running from the kitties (I really really want one) to the birds to the fish to the rodents (he called bunnies) to the lizards. Over and over he completed this cycle while one of his parents chased him and the other looked at fish tanks, fish, food, and all the other fun things that go along with owning the world's easiest pet.

After about thirty minutes of chasing the energizer bunny boy, we made a selection, and hurried home with our purchase. We would know like to introduce the newest member of our family.

A name has not been chosen yet. Keith calls it Ishie, I am toying with Gil, and Jeffrey has made no comment. Any suggestions? If we pick your name, a prize will be lovingly sent to you! I don't know what the prize is yet, but I just decided it would be fun to make this a contest. What would you name our beautiful Beta?
