Lost in Translation

The Boy: I want to go some place where we can see merritts.

Me: What's a "merrit?"

The Boy: You know, one of those small furry animals.

Me: A ferret?

The Boy: Yeah, that's what I meant.


Hmmm...maybe a combination of meerkat and ferret?
Petsmart was a weekly stop for us until I got all bird-flu-paranoid.
