Guinea Pigs

I decided to haul the two boys into the school yesterday. My son is in the same class as one of my best friend, Adrienne's daughter. Adrienne brought their Guinea Pig to school. Instead of saying something uplifting or wonderful about her kindness and how excited all the kids were to see it, I commented on how she was trying to lower the poor thing's life expectancy.
Yes, it was a feeble attempt at humor but sometimes it's better just not to make the attempt and say something positive.

I am grateful for the guinea pig experience to remind me that people will always appreciate a kind comment over one having to do with life expectancy.
