Bald Python


Lo, nonstop watcher of Animal Planet, desperately wants a ball python, actually, though she has her own name for it. "Mom, mom," she says, "they only bite if you touch their heads, and they're not poisonous. I'll buy it with my own money. I'll buy the mice too."

"Let's talk about it after you save $200," I tell her, believing that should postpone the conversation indefinitely.

God help me, in two days she's already saved $13.50, and she's planning a garage sale for Saturday.

You keep your money to yourself, Mamoo.

dang. where did she get the $13.50? she's only 6! at that age, it would have taken me years to raise $200. that snake does look pretty cool, but i wouldn't want to touch it. you need to document the upcoming garage sale. let her be in charge of the haggling too b/c that should be pure comedy. kids making up prices is always funny stuff.

and since i told you the other day how you and your friends remind me of the ya-ya's, i'll let you in on this one as well... lola reminds me of idgy threadgood from "fried green tomatoes."

I believe Lo is a bit of snake charmer, so no doubt she'll be charming folks out of their cash this weekend.
