Snakes On A Birthday Party

The Unknown Wife hung the moon for the Unknown Son's 8th birthday party yesterday.

We took about a dozen of his friends to a nearby place run by a marine biologist from Unknown University. They had tanks with all kinds of crabs, guppy sharks, iguanas, and assorted disgusting looking creatures. Just perfect for an eight year old boy.

The two highlights of his day were:

1) Petting a small (about 18 inches long) shark (it subsequently almost jumped out of the tank, to the kids delight), and

2) Having a 35 lb boa constrictor draped across his shoulders.

This was followed by (of course) pizza, cake and ice cream.

He said it was "the best birthday ever."
