A funny moment from last week. We met some friends at our little neighborhood park. One of them brought their pet guinea pig. The redhead LOVED it, which is surprising, he has recently stopped liking to touch animals.
Anyway, this neighbor kid was swinging holding his guinea pig. He dropped it jumped off, he swears! the poor thing gets scooped in feet when the kid is trying to stop and get off, then it DASHES across the playground as fast as it can.
One of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Six or seven kids desperately trying to catch this guinea pig, running around the playground, and it just evades one kid after the other.
Sitting in the shade and not having to be in charge of said guinea pig, it was HILARIOUS.
Luckily, Nibbles was found and was just fine after all the excitement.
Unfortunately, I missed several prime photo ops that afternoon, I was strangely camera-less. Lucky for us, the redhead stole my notebook to draw a portrait of Nibbles. Spontaneous nature study.
In his defense, Nibbles did have kinda beady eyes...
He would tell you that he got to hold it, and when his sister held it Nibbles pooped on her. He loves that part.
He also edited several pages of my notebook and the cover. Thanks, buddy.
I guess I need to start Moleskine #13.
Never a dull moment...
