A conversation held while driving through the rain on the way to Starbucks today:

Riley, from the backseat: *weird noise*

Me: “What’s up with that.”

JB: “He sounds like those beavers.”

Me: “Beavers? What beavers?”

JB: “You know, beavers.”

Me: “Oh, right. Yeah, he does sort of sound like a beaver. Quiet back there, you beaver.”

(Pause)

Me: (idly) “We should get some beavers. Like to keep as pets.”

JB: “Pssh. You get some beavers, here’s what happens. First you’re all, ooh, I have beavers, no one has beavers, I’m totally cool. Then you get home from work and it’s like, fuckin beavers. Your fence is gone.”

Me: “Haa. Your walls are chewed to hell.”

JB: “Your house is gnawed to a stump and everyone has waffle prints on their faces.”

Me: “…waffle?”

JB: “From their tails. Beavers get pissed, they start whacking shit with their tails. They’re all, NO DEAL. Whack!”

Me: “Beaver, deal or no deal?”

JB: “NO DEAL. WHACK!”

And then you get to tell people at work that you have a pet beaver and they all think you’re a kinky weirdo!! That would be cool.

Awesome. I love conversations like that. Although we’re not allowed to have them when I’m driving as I am unable to laugh hysterically and steer a car at the same time.

Good point, JB.. beavers would be kind of sucky pets, wouldn’t they?

But, a marmot, on the other hand… now THAT would be a cool pet!

I always thought the texture of beaver tails was sort of creepy. Now, I may never eat waffles again.

Imagine show and tell at your son’s school! Riley brought in his pet BEAVER! Free waffle imprints for all the kids HAHA. And OMG, I just remembered that the doctor who delivered my sister was Dr. Harry Beaver. I’ve seen the birth certificate…it was hilarious when she was old enough to get it.

Okay, that seriously made me laugh out loud. “No deal. Whack!”

Oh, and Irish – my friend had Harry Beaver as a doctor, too! We laughed everytime we talked about him.
