Found this photo while on Pinterest. Would give credit if I could, but the source was missing. Anyway – this could be a pretty good geeky birth announcement idea. It’s kind of a great response to the repetitive “Our family is growing by two feet…” pregnancy announcement. Because nothing says meet our cute family like stinky and furry feet. You just need some stellar caption to throw on it… like: “Thought we’d help you get over your fear of feet…and infants,” OR “Someone didn’t get the memo that we weren’t crossing our feet,” OR “We’ve all been knocked flat on our backs with excitement to announce…,” OR “Guess which one just came out of a human…,” Or perhaps it’s interactive and their enlisting your help in ensuring their kid was born with all 10 toes. Either way, you’ll be a GIANT tease with this one.
It’s no secret that many people in first world countries treat their pets like children. We were no different prior to a child. We have cats named Widow and Widower. Yes, they are black, as we are not racist when it comes to our pets, however, despite their mourning attire we named them that in hopes that they would keep our Brown Widow spider population down – although that reasoning doesn’t work when you are explaining it to an actual widow. Then it’s just awkward and insensitive…in retrospect.
Anyway, one of my favorite actitivities, you know, when I was sleeping through the night regularly and not keeping a small child alive, was costuming the cats for holidays – of which only remains on for a short time. Below you will find Widower in his Christmas attire. His other threads include black wings for Halloween – to which I sing loudly the old Batman tv show theme song “duh-nuh-nuh-nuh BLACK CAT!!!!”
