I'd much rather this post be about the traditional S'more made with graham crackers, Hershey's chocolate, marshmallow and a fire pit.

Alas, my tale assumes a different context.....

She may be picking up S'more, the guinea pig from the pet store today; he was returned for observation as he was not eating well. She took me for an introduction yesterday and used the opportunity to purchase another fish for her tank. "Two birds with one stone", as they say.

"Isn't he the cutest, Mom?"

Cute never seemed worth it to me when considering how long they live and what is expected of a responsible small pet (read: rodent) owner. But, I can only say back, "Yeah, he's cute....but...." And then the conversation is over.



  1. S'More a girl? At least in cats, calico cats (red/black/white)are always girls, 99.9% of the time...this is why:

  2. I <3 Smores! He is doing fantastic- which I am sure you are thrilled about!!!
