Once Upon a Ham

Save me, oh who will save me! Alas, I am but a hamster trapped by puny mortals who adorn me in Barbie dresses and seat me on a tuffet at The Round Table for a spot of tea with Polly Pocket!

Hamsel in distress:

  23. PS My nephew (the former broccoli-hater) has a toy castle in which he stages epic battles with his grandpa, who CHEATS. All Ev’s toy and stuffed amminals are involved in these wars, which always end in him and Grandpa flinging stuffed animals at each other. 😉

  24. Ehn! Eating broccoli in Moderation Lounge! Pass me the cheese sauce, someone?
