such a moment, a big cardinal proposes during a basketball game to his future wife. seeing humans dress as a critter is so touching to a ferret.
now, i'm a bit manic, slightly hyper. oooops, this just in: mary, my tormentor, "sam, slightly hyper? you are as hyper as a rocket on lift off..." <--me: mary, so how's your mother?
ok, so i don't stay on subject very long, i can't help it. it's not that i can be distracted. people think ferrets get distracted very quickly, and this is NOT true. if i want to get into your sock collection, or the top drawer and take a nap? trust me, i will work it till i succeed...
let's just say a story of this sort will only warrant a few moments, then i go find something more interesting to investigate
so i was thinking, wow! a big red cardinal, at least they weren't called the Wilmar (Minn) High School Squirrels. that would have almost certainly generated a quick "click"
squirrels are the bane of ferrets. they are always getting Geico commercials, yucking it up for the cameras, dropping nuts on my head as i stroll to the woodpile to visit the field mice. who do they think they are?
the comments were funny:
A cat, by the name of CM wrote: This is boring news. Too many people trying to come up with "unique" ways of proposal, or wedding ceremonies or even weird first dances at the reception. I think it takes away from the romance and dignity. Your wedding shouldn't be a performance. You shouldn't be trying to get the attention of media you should be focusing on each other.
"The Legend" himself dressed as a Super Bowl Trophy: I've seen my share of this sort of nonsense...proposals and even weddings at halftime of college basketball and minor league hockey games. It's always embarrassing and people always clap - then make fun of the whole thing.
this comment by Mitch, a 1 1/2 year old summed it up nicely for me, oh out of the mouths of babes: Oh for gods sake lighten up. You tongue-clacking biddies want to tell everyone how to do everything. If he liked it and she like it - who the #%%^&* cares what you nags think?
mitch and i gotta team up!
