Bear-ism

If you read the 10/26/07 post titled Of Apple Pies, Orphan Trains, and Dancing Dogs on Bubba's Sis' blog, then you know the kids get paid $5 for cleaning up animal fluids. After eating all of Cleo the Cat's food, Ty the Dog had an upset tummy. As Lamb was running to get him outside, I heard Bear say, "Leave him inside! I can get $5 if he throws up in the house!" Ever the entrepreneur, that Bear. Luckily his sister has higher morals.

Now to show his gentler side. After 2 years of being 'smothered' by a school friend, he has finally been able to break free of the friendship. Now he has a group of school friends where they are all equals; two boys, a girl, & his crush. He decided that he wanted to get his friends a little token. For the boys, he chose wrestling cards (he has discovered that wonderful entertainment this year). For the girls, he chose a pen in their favorite color & an eraser. That way, they'll always think of him in school. ;) Ok, he didn't say that part. However, he did say that he would put his name on the boys' gifts but he wanted the girls' gifts to be anonymous. Cuz that's just embarrassing to give a girl a special gift.

$5 is SO not enough for cleaning up dog barf. That boy needs a raise!
