word of the day: Nematoda
Phylum Nematoda: roundworms living in my backyard that are brightly colored in hues of pink, blue and yellow. Unfortunately, they don't reproduce without dollars spent at the local store.
Otherwise known as: really large toys from Walgreens that my Bentley boy loves to play with like a maniac.
Amount of time they last: depends on how many times I play tug of worm with him and fall down on my butt ripping the material so the fuzzy guts fall out.
Cost: Five dollars!
Enjoyment of interacting with him while acting like a canine myself: Priceless!
We've had other colors of this wormy toy in the past but they've all gone to the great worm heaven in the trash can. And by the way, the Bentman is still dodging the camera for some reason, so I'm having to be a real sneak to get any pictures of him lately. I won this round!
Have a great day. For now, my days will consist of studying like a mad scientist to pass my next Biology Exam in lab tomorrow and Lecture class next week!
