Animal Wednesday-Oliver gets a new Roommate

We'll start slow-what can it BE? A box arrived-I called out "what you doing?" and the woman answered "Waiting for my snake"

Then she was opening the box and ooing and cooing-it was foul-only it most certainly was NO FOWL. It seems fairly well behaved, but at the moment it appears to weigh more than the biggest dog. There is a lock on the cage-it seems that I enjoy opening doors and this would be a bad door to open.

Now for a riddle-What is sweet and wonderful and makes the most awesome hissssssssy sound? Hmmmmm? Not that snake, I can tell you that much! It's a new thing called Reddi Whip. The woman puts it on some of the things she eats, and I love it too. She gave me a little of it tonight, so I forgive her for the new life form.

(But she better not name him Oliver-there are far too many Oliver's in this house already)

I knew it was going to be a snake but I had to keep looking until it came into view. 'Shiver'

You are really having a HAW kind of day.
