Owl Puke
We went to Barnes and Noble on Thursday evening and Evan (10) was allowed to bring $15 of his money to spend. He tried really hard to convince me he needed a $30 book on dinosaurs, but I would spring for the other half, because he has about 10 books on them already (at least) and they all look the same to me. So, finally, he found a book with the title, Owl Puke. Along with the book came a tray with several labled compartments and a small box containing a genuine, heat sanitized, guaranteed to contain at least one skeleton, owl pellet for dissection. Last night before work, I got to help him with that. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done this for fun when I was 10! I'm pretty sure I would have bought comic books with that money.

I'm pretty sure I'll spring for the dinosaur book next time.

ooooh....owl pellets! (we had enough in the woods out back that I wouldn't have needed a book...)

My prized possession at that age was a set of encyclopedias...World Book 1955, I believe.

The explosives and poisons sections were my favorites.

And I *twitch* turned out OK.

LOL. Never a dull moment...even the ones devoted to owl puke. Y'all are funny.

   Owl Puke!! I love it!

   You're pretty funny.

   When I was 10 I would have bought electronics experimentation stuff. Where I lived I got owl pellets for free :)

owl puke...

Thank you for taking the "owl puke duty." I will clean out gerbil cages, pick up dog poop, and wash the yuckiest clothes you can give me, but I don't think I can make myself touch a hairy ball of owl puke. I owe you one...
