I, on the other hand, am pretty dang good at reading and writing and stuff. For the record, I don't mean creative things like poems and stories, I mean like websites for hotels and manufacturing companies. Riveting stuff.
So when we made a trip to Hobby Lobby today, just I wandered around taking awkward photos while Tim picked out some paints, a canvas and some new brushes. I can only assume he will paint the next Mona Lisa, while I do something like cook a somewhat edible dinner. I did actually find something I wanted at Hobby Lobby:
Any guesses why? I just couldn't justify the price though, so I put it back. No biggie, Tim can probably whittle one from an old log in his spare time or something.
I saw a sign for a pet store and had to go in. Tim has been "gently encouraging" me to consider getting a new kitten. I honestly think the boy would take every animal home if he could, so I said no (again). Heartless. We did see some interesting pets though:
Is it just me, or are ferrets gross? I have to say that the cute white one grew on me but the grey one? Giant rat. Speaking of rats...
Really? REALLY? People pay $20 for a rat with a haircut? I just don't understand. I really, really don't understand.
I also got my stocking purchased and then ate grocery store sushi in my car in a dark parking lot in front of the liquor store. Because that's what all the cool kids do.
Do you consider yourself to be artistic? What's your skill?
Not in the slightest, unfortunately. No musical skills, no art skills, and a basic grasp on the English language.
Group vote: Rodents - pest or pets?
Isn't it weird how similar the words "pets" and "pest" are to each other? I'm going with pests on this one. Ferrets and rats are not welcome in my home.
