It’s true that my sister Linda always seems to want to buy family members animals for their birthdays, myself included. Fortunately, the only pet I’ve received from her was a pet cockatiel, Bilbo, who was totally awesome. I’ve been lucky in that I’ve managed to dodge the ferret she’s been wanting to get me for years.

It’s also true that my mom’s celebrating her birthday this week! so help me wish Mombot a “Happy Birthday!”
