And now our new regular feature, Dear Aunt Slappy.
Dear Aunt Slappy,
When are the dates you'll be in DC?
Signed, Busy in Boston
While I may be an artificially alive, 140-year-old spinster and moral buttinski, it's really not for me to say if your son should keep badgers in his room. From what I read here in this 2nd edition of Holmstead's Guide to North American Mammals, badgers are said to be "courteous to the blind, resolute when confronted by elephants, and prone to eating middle children." If your son has no younger and older siblings, he should be quite safe so long as he doesn't make his new pet watch Dumbo. Hope this helps.
P.S. Aug. 13-18.
