#42 When You Grow Up Poor…

… you don’t have pets. There are four damn kids in this house. What, do you think dogs don’t eat food? A cat? What the hell are you gonna use a cat for? I’m not cleaning up after that. If you want a pet go catch a frog and keep it in a jar in the back yard. So you try and catch a frog but can’t so you catch a mouse instead. You put it in a jar and put it in the back yard on a beautiful sunny Summer day. You go to feed it a leaf in the evening and end up having an impromptu burial service. A couple days later your mom wants to know where her jar went and so then you have an impromptu exhumation. You bury the thing in an open grave and notice the next day that the neighbors cat is digging it up and playing with it. Man, it would be fun to have a cat.
