Word to the wise: don’t ever make outlandish bets with your kid over grades. I bet Hayley if she substantially raised her math grade, I’d have a limo get her at school. Of course she did it.
While I would have actually had the limo get her, I did sort of think it was a waste of money and negotiated a settlement – a pair of guinea pigs. Jeff was on the fence but when she found two guinea pigs at the SPCA that needed to be rescued, even he couldn’t resist.
Now a week later, we know now would have been vastly cheaper to just get the limo. Of course, they don’t like pellets so we are making them mini-salads twice a day. We’ve had to buy them two cages, tons of stuff and lord knows if they are happy or not. But at least it is a better use of money than limos and Hayley is happy. She’s named them Ivory and Italee after two former UNC women’s basketball players, Ivory Latta and Italee Lucas who are now in the WNBA.
The original SPCA info:
Hi, my name is Beatrice and I’m here with my friend Ramona! We’re here at the SPCA in hopes of finding someone that will love us for the rest of my life. Guinea Pigs are little, entertaining creatures who love to cuddle and we’re quite content being held by people. We enjoy cuddling together in our igloo and munching on some yummy treats of carrots and lettuce. We’ll need an owner that can spend time with us every day and help us become more comfortable in my new home. If two cute little guinea pigs are what you’ve been looking for, come check us out!
