it was amazing

I made all my pets read this to try and make them understand that they need to support ME for a change. It's not a good book for getting the good life, unfortunately. It's cute enough, though. It was cute in a good way, not the "Wild hijinks ensue!" sitcomy problems way. I think birds cause an awful lot of problems. It was good that the book took that problem seriously. I also liked that Mr. Popper was obsessed and got into the spirit of his hobby. I love to know that kind of stuff about people. I've fallen "in love" with places like that all of the time.

The Crimson Fucker wait!

you made the pets read it??? can they read??? or you read em to them? or was it an audio book deal??? please expand!

Mariel I made them read it. I guess an audio book would have worked better. They can't read. They are pretty stupid.

The Crimson Fucker guahahahahha! poor pets! what else you make em read?


I'm trying to find one of those that isn't me!
