Once Upon a Christmas Memory


A Single Parents throwback memory of days gone in the flash of time…

While perusing through some old family photos today, I found this gem. Smiling faces of two happy little people, holding two of the most rambunctious little happy hampsters named Busy and Tiffany. The season of jingle bells, Christmas cookies and holiday parties without a doubt were keeping our household scurrying all over the city.

This particular Saturday was O-So Special, it began with our annual Golden Corral Holiday Christmas party, and then off to a quick loving visit with Grandma. Everyone was excited to see Santa, indulge in the most scrumptious food and horderves on the plant, and to show off our new holiday outfits. Upon leaving the house, everything was checked and re-checked. Busy and Tiffany were sung as a bug, each one in their own individual new cages, filled with food, toys and that cool as shit hampster wheel thingy…at least Mommy thought so…

We had a blast that day, exhausted and full of great nom-nom, still singing Christmas songs, finally it was time for that long ride home. Those two smiling faces barreled into the house, running to their little bedrooms, calling out Hi Busy, Hi Tiffany…no sound, no movement…hmmm! As I entered the kitchen to put up some holiday items, all I could hear was screaming, crying and yelling, omg…our little family members met their untimely demise on their backs with four little legs straight up in the air. I’m soooo sorry you guys, Mommy apparently cut the heat off and they froze to death…SILENCE…

Well, the moral of the story is don’t forget to take care of your family pets.
