Miss Sugar’s Kangaroo
Miss Sugar loves animals. Well, many species of animals. Some, not so much. Rodents are not on her list of beloved animals. I know what you are wondering, Gentle Readers. You are asking, “What about kangaroos?”
It is interesting that you should ask that very question. I know the answer. Sugar once tried to love a kangaroo, but it did not work out. I shall explain. Pay attention. What I am about to say might prove to be of considerable value to you in your future dealings with kangaroos.
Sugar saw an advertisement for a feed store that was selling baby kangaroos. I have been to many feed stores. I have never seen kangaroos at any of them. Sugar and daughter Michelle went to see the kangaroos. Michelle wanted one. They were selling for only $600 each. There were four to choose from. Those of you familiar with the market for kangaroos know whether $600 is a good deal. T his was Sugar’s first shopping trip for a kangaroo. Michelle’s too.
At the feed store, Sugar, who has a way with animals, used her charm on one of the kangaroos. She usually makes animals feel comfortable. When I say animals, I am referring to dogs, cats, horses, and even cows. Surprisingly, Sugar’s technique did not charm this particular kangaroo.
It grabbed her with its front claws, stabbing Sugar’s biceps. As it held Sugar, preventing escape, the cute baby kangaroo kicked Sugar in the stomach with its powerful hind legs. Sugar fell backwards. Her arms were bleeding. Everyone in the feed store laughed as Sugar jumped up, saying, “That thing attacked me.”
And that is how Sugar saved $600 and that is why we don’t have a kangaroo.
I’m okay with it.
