But I think I've come up with a way for Science to make it up to me that I'm not currently writing this from Moon Base 37.
Penny and Bianca, two of our fosters, are in the full swing of the 3 AM crazies. Every night. Every night they entertain themselves by thundering around the bedroom and are really making way too much noise given their actual mass. I compared them to tiny elephants. And then it struck me: tiny elephants!
I want a tiny elephant. If we can make goats that produce spider silk in their milk and if I could manage to make glow in the dark bacteria in my 'Biology for Non-Science Majors' course when I was 19 surely we can get on making exotic pocket pets.
I rather imagine it would go something like this:
|Walks are very important for your elephant's health.|
Once you start thinking about tiny exotic animals your mind will reel at the possibilities. Can you imagine having a whale small enough to keep in a fish tank? Sign me up for that, please.
|You can already buy brine shrimp at the pet store.|
When telling Pater of my cunning plan he said that he'd rather have saber tooth house cats. I can see the appeal, and it would probably be more feasible than my dream tiny elephant.
|Tuxedo markings - the classiest cat coloring.|
So just a heads up, Science. You're on notice. Start making my dreams come true.
