Burgers, Chicken, Sugar Gliders and a Pomeranian
October 5, 2010 § 2 Comments
My friend Joe and his lovely wife Whitney recently had me over for dinner. Since I am a lonely bachelor on a budget, I decided to accept their invitation and had a wonderful dinner of grilled burgers and chicken legs. The food was outstanding, as was the company. We dined outside and watched the sun retreat for the evening as it spread a fan of glorious color across the firmament. Joe and Whit really know how to treat a guy right. Plus they have a very cute dog. No, I didn’t eat him.
After our fine repast we went back inside, where I was introduced to sugar gliders. The name is deceptive; they weren’t dessert, as I had expected. They are tiny marsupials that jump around and look like they just came out of a Disney cartoon. Very cute critters. Each one is bite-size, about the same as two tiger prawns. A big bite, but you could manage.
