...about little Hammie-Boy.
Last night (rather, early this morning) when I got home from the office, out of habit I walked over to the gaming bookshelf where his little house used to perch. He loved to come out at night and roll around in this Ball of Speed Magnification™. I was so tired that I thought I heard him scuttling around in his nest. Instead of his cage, though, stands a candle burning in remembrance of him. That was both warm and sad-making.
Thank you for your well-wishes last week. The sympathy is much appreciated. It's nice to know that y'all don't think I'm a weirdo for falling for a short-lived guy like Hefner. Weird for lots of other reasons, sure, but hamsters are people too. Especially little guys like him, so kind and full of personality.
