What Penguins Want

q. shenaynay

Since some have asked, I suppose I should clear this up. Spuddy Buddy understands it perfectly, so it's only fair to inform our gentle readers as well.

If penguins come into your room at night, and if they then opt to speak to you, there will only be one topic: FISH. They want fish. Nothing but fish. But they only want live, wiggly fish with crispy, crunchy scales.

Since we only keep the filleted, frozen variety of fish on hand here at the Beehive, it behooves us not to speak back to them. They don't understand the concept of non-wiggly fish, and they do get so brusque and uppity -- and to be honest, excessively flappy -- if you try to explain.

But hey, if the penguins should migrate to YOUR bedroom some night, and if you happen to be one of those families who keep wiggly fish around, feel free to do whatever you deem most hospitable by your household standards. But don't say I didn't warn you about the flappy stuff.

I hope that clears things up.

I was in stitches over the "what not to wear" post. for you see, i (of course) have done the same thing to Sharonius. i have long maintained that, as a daughter, it is my duty to drag my mother into the 21st century, yea though she be kicking and screaming. and i really have had quite a bit of success. smaller hair. no shoulder pads. some days (GASP) she wears lip gloss rather than matte lipstick.

oh, and the penguins made perfect sense to me the first go-around. everyone else just needs to get with the program, lol.

Sure - Penguins come to my bedroom all the time. They really are quite cool creatures, especially once you get to know them, although you must have a working knowledge of different kinds of fish to carry on any sort of meaningful conversation.

*Hint* they like bass.
