Pet Dinosaur

Alex: Mom, can I have a pet beetle? I really like beetles.

Me: No, Alex. I know you really like beetles, but they belong outside where they can run around and play with their beetle friends. Did you know that the whole of the outside world is their home? They can go anywhere they want.

Alex: AAAWwww. (three syllable sing-song) How about a dog, then?

Me: No, Alex. We don’t have room for a dog, darlin’
Alex: How about a pet dinosaur, then?.dinodog

Me: Great! I tell you what. YOU find a dinosaur and I PROMISE you can keep him. How’s that?

Alex: You’re so cool, Mom.

Me: Yes, I know.
