There are a couple of good reasons to get a pet:
1. You have so much time and love, you just don’t know what to do with it.
2. You want to pick up more poop.
3. You are guilted into it.
If you know anything about me at all, you know the obvious answer. Yes, the 5-year-old guilted me into bringing not just one animal, but multiple animals into my home. And it’s a really, really good cautionary tale that I’m telling over at The Big Jewel today.
The Big Jewel is a wonderful online literary humor site (dare I say a gem?) that I first discovered through the hilarious and talented Anna Lefler. And if you actually needed further convincing to visit, it has been home to such funny ladies as Wendi Aarons, Elizabeth Bastos, and Whitney Collins.
Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s non-pet-related poop I need to pick up.
