Peanut: I guess so. Anyway, what are the questions for this week, huh?
Daisy: Let me see now--ah, yes....the first person emailed Critter Corner asking how much do guinea pigs cost.
Peanut: Maybe they're putting the thought of getting one into consideration! Oh, but, isn't that like slavery?
Daisy: What do ya' mean?
Peanut: You know...I don't think people should buy animals. Buying living beings was banned by George Washington.
Daisy: I thought it was a different president. Abe Lincoln. Or was it Teddy Roosevelt? Whoever that is. Or maybe James Garfield. Was it a president at all? Oh man, I really need to touch up on my social studies skills.
Peanut: Whatever. The answer is this: around 10 dollars. The cage is the expensive part. Um, I was wondering, where exactly do you get these random questions??
Daisy: I get the questions from the people who ask them!!!! Where else would they come from????
Peanut: Well, you could make them up because nobody really does email us. I know it!
Daisy: THEY DO TOO!! I ask people to mail us all the time! To prove it, I have another question send by air-mail: AH-HEM.....(smooths out letter) ........ A person wonders what our favorite foods are.
Peanut: That's so easy-peasy! I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE carrots, cucumbers, apples, sunflower seeds......
Daisy: Uh....oh-kay, we get the message! My turn next! My favorite foods are yogurt drops, crackers, pumpkin seeds, popcorn...
Peanut: NOT processed food! Veggies and fruits, you know what I mean. That's obviously why you're so fat!
Daisy: I am not fat.
Peanut: YES YOU ARE!!
Daisy: (whispering) Please stop saying that--your embarrassing me on national TV!
Peanut: Ha! Well, good! (in a sing-song voice)YOU are fa-aht, ohhh, you arrrrre FAh-t....
Daisy: AM not!
Peanut: Then why did you say you eat processed foods.
Daisy: One, yogurt drops are NOT processed, and two, I am NOT FAT!!!!!
Peanut: Uh, that's all, for now on Critter Corner, and a note to all yogurt drop-eaters, don't eat too many like Daisy here, or you'll get F-A-T!
And here is a picture I put up of a healthy food to eat. YUM! And it won't make you fat!
Peanut: I didn't say anything.
