To All a Good Night

It’s been a long week for me. I think it’s the short, gray days we’ve been having here. When I got home, I fed the boys and ate my dinner. I was tired and decided to lay down in front of the television in the bedroom.

Big mistake.

I woke up four hours later. The television was still on and my computer was sitting next to me in sleep mode. I looked down to see the sweetest sight.

Fred and Lamont managed to escape from their cage again. They hadn’t wandered far. They were both curled up against my stomach sleeping. “Oh, boys,” I sighed. “You two are so sweet.”

Lamont shifted and then yawned. Fred was out cold. I laid there for several minutes more. Lamont got up and began to stretch. He made a motion like he was going to let several beans fly. “Do that in the cage,” I told him.

He heard my voice and took off for the cage leaving several beans in his wake. Lamont ran into a bowl of pellets in his wake. It woke up Fred. “Hey, dude,” I said to Fred.

Fred stretched and sauntered off back to the cage. As he walked, he stopped at each of Lamont’s beans and left his own. “Fred!” I admonished him at his second stop. That didn’t dissuade him. He went on matching Lamont bean for bean.

I rolled on to my back and asked the ceiling, “Why do all of my guinea pigs have attitudes?” There was no answer. I heard the boys digging into their hay.

“Okay,” I said getting up, “time for bed.” Of course, the boys demanded a snack. I obliged their request…”Thank you for the snuggle,”‘I told them while fed them. “I am the luckiest mom in the world.” – KA
