G-Force v Parenting-Force… which will be the winner?

Before you go rushing out to buy your kid a guinea pig I want to tell you my first memory of them. We had two in class in 4th grade. One day I watched one chase the other around the cage for about 2 minutes until the chased one got sick of it, did a handstand, and demonstrated the unexpected storage capacity of its bladder while pissing into the other’s face.

Here is what you have to look forward to if you give in–

  1. Aromatic rodent piss and plenty of it.
  2. The tears of a child—who wasn’t old enough or able to transmogrify instant gratification into responsible behavior—for a dead pet.
