Last night was the first night that my kids had their new hermit crabs in their rooms. Apparently the clawed creatures are a little noisy at night.
"Mama," my daughter said. "Those crabs are creepy!"
"Why is that?" I asked.
"They make funny sounds at night. I think they're trying to dig their way out of the container."
"I see. So maybe we should move them at night so they don't keep you up?"
My daughter nodded. "I'll put them in the loft with the frog."
So tonight I'll look forward to listening to a chorus of crabs and a frog as I try to watch TV. Should be interesting.
Scratch.... ribbit... scratch... good luck :)ReplyDelete
PS... do you know you still have the word verification codes?

Somebody else mentioned the word verification codes. I tried to change it, but didn't have luck. I'll check out your site. Thanks!Delete
crabs and frogs should be quite the harmony comboReplyDelete
Yep, they were. I felt like I was on the set of Disney's Little Mermaid last night.Delete
We have a toad in our basement. Or we did. I haven't heard him lately. He'd make noises when I was trying to sleep or watch TV.ReplyDelete
It's kind of weird hearing frog/toad noises the middle of winter, isn't it? It makes me feel like I'm living in a rainforest or something.Delete
I'm feeling left out. All I have in my loft are spiders (I hope!)ReplyDelete
Ha! Do you want some of my animals?Delete
I loved my hermit crab from when I was a kid. Always creeped me out when they got out of their shells to get into a bigger one - they look like aliens.ReplyDelete
(The new word verification hurts me. I wonder why they changed it.)
They do look weird. One of the crabs just changed shells, so we got to see him shell-less.Delete
I'm going to see if I can get that word verification off. I know - it's really annoying!
