Party Animals (Parenting Theme)

Post by UmbrageOfSnow » Tue May 15, 2012 6:16 am

"Sam's Exotic Petting Zoo Parties" sounded perfect for animal-crazed Bethany's birthday but the disappointingly small trailer had us worried.

"Is there a panda, Daddy?"

"Pandas are... oof!"
Something underfoot, red and raccoon-like, sent me sprawling into a fuzzy black and white mass. Bethany giggled.

"A giraffe too!"

A yellow neck extended into our second-story window; probably eating the houseplants. The pegasus on the roof shut me up.

We corralled the animals into Sam's suddenly cavernous trailer just before caketime. When the other parents looked in, only a pony and one antlerless rabbit remained. But Bethany's almost too excited for Halloween.

What Bo has really improved on is the Megabeast power descriptions. He's SO much better than "Has ability to balance wine goblet on penis".
