and I will name him george

9yo’s teacher gave them the link to a website where they sell hedgehogs. she wants a pet desperately.
9yo: and look,  the one I want is older,  with a shy temperament which is perfect for me, and *only* $125!
daddy: hedgehogs scratch,  bite,  claw. they’re vicious little creatures. you can’t even pet them because of their spines – they will rip your hands to bloody shreds!!!
9yo: [pauses] that just makes me more determined to get one.
daddy and me: [dying laughing]
