It started out as a hobby. I had read some scientific research and curiosity took over. My friends, Tom, Dick and Harry didn't approve, but I'm convinced that was just because of the smell those animals emitted. The wind does blow in their direction. My friends obviously couldn't think I was a bit looney. Heck, they hauled in grain and alfalfa to keep those critters fed.
Anyways, John Beck, another friend really liked the first animal I created and named it Whatever. This little guy was sweet, loving and cooed when anyone scratched behind it's ears. He was so cute. Not wanting him to be lonely, I created a friend for him. Totally cool hobby and this time John joined to help me. We put the fly and the llama in my specially built hobby cage and within minutes we had a friend for Whatever. John named her However.
I'm writing this to warn all hobby enthusiasts to think twice about your hobby. Not a month had gone by and they had babies who had more babies and so on. All of them demanded ear scratching. Every day, I have to hose down the bodies that look like flies and scratch and groom their llama heads and ears. No time to write more - gotta go. They're trying to get into the neighbors place. Guess I should have scratched their ears earlier.
