I started feeling the “term break” spirit too late… Less than 48 hours till the next 10 week marathon starts…
So. Last night, I played the sympathy card.
“You know, sometimes when I come home from work… I feel lonely.”
(At this point I thought he would ask me to get a boyfriend or something.)
“Lonely? Hmm.. Pray la.”
“Eh… ya. And also… I was thinking… Can we get another pet?” *Flashes my sweetest smile ever*
“Another pet? Another hamster!?”
“You want a cat.”
“You want a dog?!”
“Nooooo! Ya la I was thinking hamster or guinea pig or… cat.” *Flashes another nice smile*
There was silence for a while.
“You want to keep pets, you better not travel.”
“Think about it, ok?”
HE DID NOT SAY NO.
Now… I see 2 solutions to this.
1. Stop travelling
2. Get them to fall in love with an independent cat so they won’t mind taking care of it even when I travel
