Before moving to Arizona, our fence was enveloped by climbing milkweed called Honeyvine. The hungry caterpillars would munch and munch and munch until an amazing metamorphosis occurred. I treasure the sweet memories of watching my children's reaction to the butterflies spreading their newly formed wings.
When reading an online article, half of the fun is skipping ahead to the comment section. Some people are hilarious, others brutally honest; some individuals need a filter, while others need to cut back on their caffeine intake. Here are a few replies to the AskYahoo question: "Why do people dress their pets in costumes?"
--"Because their life is so boring and pointless and they have nothing more fun to do with themselves. So, they spend hours finding and or making clothes for their pets (WHO ALREADY HAVE WARM FUR AND LOOK "CUTE"!!!!!!!!!!!!!)..."
--"I know my puppy wouldn't tolerate one but there are some really cute ones out there. I saw a yoda one that was so funny - my husband and I both laughed so hard. I don't see any harm in it unless it's uncomfortable or restrictive."
--"Maybe it's because the pets like prancin' around in animal costumes."
--"Maybe they live in a cold environment?"
--"People love their pets so much, they would do things that they think is good for their pets."
--"People are weird like that!"
--"Becas it's cute like you wode no dume."
Reading the vastly intelligent comments has taught me a few things:1. I'm bored, weird and apparently have way too much time on my hands.
2. Outfits are completely acceptable, unless they are uncomfortable or restrictive, especially in the case of yoda outfits.
3. My pet actually likes prancing in costumes (even though the look on his face tells me otherwise).
5. If I ever have the pleasure to visit a cold weather climate, I will see a plethora of pets in costume.
6. Costumes = Love
7. Apparently, I have been spelling the following words incorrectly: because, would, dummy
A special thanks to AskYahoo users for the laughs.
