I had a dream last night that some evil person gave Thing 1 & Thing 2 a pet snake for their birthday.  Not just ANY pet snake, a PREGNANT pet snake.  So we had a four-foot long boa constrictor and five or six shoelace sized boa constrictors.  Note to friends and family, if you give any of my offspring pet reptiles I will cut you.

Because I don't want a snake, I want a hedgehog.

I'm not crazy enough to get the kids SNAKES or any reptiles as pets. I don't want my m-i-l to cut me!! She would blow a freakin' gasket.
BTW, those hedgehogs are kinda creepy, in a cute sort of way. Is the one on the left male?

Don't you use hedgehogs to wipe your shoes on? While in France two years ago, we actually saw a live hedgehog running across my friend's parent's garden. I didn't know the french name but described it as the animal you wipe your shoes off on before entering the house. My french friend understood and laughed hysterically. hérisson is hedgehog in french BTW
