I have been researching Cotournix quails and would like to get a pair. I'm not totally sure I have the energy for them, but they're so dang cute, and I do love animals.
I was mentioning this to my friend Paul, telling him how Claus has been on a 'yes' streak with me lately. (See: The Treatment)
In previous conversations, Paul and I have discussed Claus' obstinance on having a second child. He is a firm no and totally not moveable on this. I tried for years and gave up. He gives in to me 99% of the time but on the 1% of the time when he's made up his mind, he is set.
"Goats, birds, shrimp, bunnies, guinea pigs - I'm telling you, you have to think of it like Fun Factory," he said. "You get all the little prizes, then save that up and trade it in for a bigger prize. Tell him you're exchanging all the farm animals for a baby."
Um. I'll let you know if that strategy works.
