The human female brought home a souvenir from the field trip and I’ve spent most of the day pondering it. She says I can have it, that it’s just the sort of thing I would like.
I have no clue what it is. I’m guessing it’s some kind of plant structure, since it has a stemmy sort of thing and appears to be dropping small seeds all over her desk. What’s that she’s saying? It’s called a gumball?
Now I am not sure whether to be thankful or insulted. On the one hand, I *do* like it. . It’s hard, it’s spiky, and it looks as if it could be easily weaponized. On the other hand—gumball? Does she think I’d actually be stupid enough to put this in my mouth?
I have a better idea. I’m going to leave it where she will step on it barefoot when she stumbles out of bed tomorrow.
