Oh dear friends. This is exactly what I overheard daddy telling mommy. “Get your beaver off the table.” Then, I went and looked at mom’s pictures on her phone and find her beaver on the table! I was shocked. I was in awe. I was almost piggy mortified.
But as I do sometimes, I get ahead of myself. You see when mom/dad met up with Shoko and Kali’s parents in Alabama, they exchanged gifts. One of the gifts was this beaver – and don’t worry Shoko and Kali’s mom has a matching one. Snorts – astonishing I know! Those two brought their matching beavers drinking and out to a restaurant! Can you imagine what everyone thought when they put them on the table?
And mom’s little beaver was drinking. There goes any sanity that might have been thought about that night. And then… they named their beavers. Rolls piggy eyes. I guess if men can name their toys, girls can too. Snorts with laughter.
Mom named hers Billy. That sounds like a good old southern name doesn’t it? Well – oinks – you know there has to be a story behind that name. You see for the longest time mom/dad watched this television show called Billy the Exterminator. Billy was one of the main guys on the show along with his mom, dad and brother. In their business, they would go to houses and make unwanted animals go away like roaches, snakes, mice, squirrels, etc. One time, his mom called Billy for a job on removing some beavers. She gave him the information and told him, “Billy, go get that beaver.” Now, there is just something so wrong with a mom telling her son, “Go get that beaver”. Shakes piggy head in amusement. Maybe it was the way she said it? I’m not sure. But it was so funny that daddy fell off the couch laughing.
So today my friends, I leave you with this cute little beaver I found on the internet. Have a great Monday!
And P.S. Thank you so much my friends Jean and Bill (Kali and Shoko’s parents) for the beaver. This little guy has gotten around into a lot of places – don’t worry the camera has followed him – snorts.
