How to Control the Pet Population

posted by Momo Fali on August 26, 2009

While riding in the car last night my seven year old son said, “Mom, I can’t decide if I want to be a vet or a magician when I grow up.”

He paused briefly then said, “So I think I’m just going to become a magician and make pets disappear.”

    You know, Momo, you could publish his one-liners and get rich off your kid. I mean, save up for college.

    Ah, yes, but the true sign of a magician will be if he can then bring them back!

  • Kori

    He definitly has the right idea!

  • terri

    Send him to my house. He can practice on my misbehaving cats!

    At one point in her childhood, my niece decided she was going to be a tap-dancing waitress.

    Bob Barker would be proud…

    He is a total genius. I kinda thought somewhere in there you'd be asking him to make LucyDaisy disappear. πŸ™‚ If you end up asking him to do that at some point, ask him to beam her over here to my house. πŸ˜‰

    Can he intern at my house? I just have this one dog I could let him make disappear…

  • Rachel


    Awesome. Will he come here? please.

  • Maureen

    Well, I guess that's better than a Vet who makes them disappear…

    That's one way to cut down on the cost of having a pet.

    The real question is "how exactly are you going to make them dissapear?"

    He's a thinker!! I mean why decide on a career when you can have BOTH!! He's too fun…

  • Heather

    He's a "have your cake & eat it too" kinda kid, huh?

    I just LOVE him.

  • Otter Thomas

    That boy is hilarious! Maybe he could be a comedian. That joke right there would work perfectly with a deadpan delivery.

  • newnorth
