Pet Platypus?

baby platypuses

“Mom, is Daddy allergic to platypuses?” Luke asked.

“Not that I’m aware of,” I said.

“Can we get one?”

“You mean, as a pet?”

“Yeah, as a pet.”

“I don’t think you can keep a platypus as a pet.”

“Yes you can.”

“Where did you hear that?”

“I saw it on TV.”

“Right….”

There was silence for a moment.

“So can we?” Luke asked again.

“I’ll talk to Daddy about it.”

“Or we can get a fish.  A platypus or a fish.  It’s up to you.”

“Ok, Luke.  Thank you.”

Phineas and Ferb

This idea was implanted in my son’s brain by Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb.
