I don’t know what just happened, but it was expensive.
My sister, while hanging out here with my broadband rather than their dial-up, introduced SK to the world of Webkinz and the pleading began. Don’t you know my son was the only person on the planet, maybe even in the entire universe if aliens have toys, who didn’t have a Webkinz?
As fate would have it, the pricey little downtown gift shop I absolutely adore and therefore never, ever enter unaccompanied by my very sensible husband, had a sign out front for a Webkinz sale this morning. In I went.
SK made it pretty clear he wanted a Boston Terrier, and I found one. Mission accomplished.
A ringtailed lemur?
I’m sorry, but when a stuffed animal can make a thirty-six year old woman unaccompanied by children break into an impromptu performance of Madagascar, complete with “I like to move it, move it…” and even a little hip action, there’s no leaving it behind.
And then I found out I spent enough to get a great sale price on a third Webkinz. So now we’re the proud owners of a Boston Terrier, a ringtailed lemur and a frog.
Or rather, SK’s the proud owner of a dog and a frog. King Julian’s mine.
Did I mention they also sell Yankee Candles?
I think my swipey card has a charlie horse.
I wouldn’t be able to pass up King Julian, either. :nod:
Of course, now must go google Webkinz… :eyebrow:
OK, went and looked. Shouldn’t’ve done that. Already have thing for stuffed animals (as Chase’s room will attest), and now we have this grandbaby…
SK would give you hell if he saw the number of Webkinz my 3 have.
Ty – 3 dragons, bird, horse, dinosaur
E-Bug – whale, lizrad, 2 monkeys, silver back gorilla
Z-man – frog, 2 dogs, snake
Me – pink pony, tiger
I’m not sure if that is all of them. I lost track after a while. :crazy:
Sooo jealous of King Julian! And I can totally see your impromptu performance. LOL
Oooh, brave of you and your card. I know that store. Which is why I don’t go there, my swipey card will cave under the pressure… or is that me? :shrug: My kiddo has Webkinz… more than I ever thought possible thanks to Nana, and Santa brought me the German Shepherd for Christmas last year. I confess to sleeping with her every night (no real dogs here). Congrats on King Julian! :woot:
I buy other people webkinz. I can’t handle the responsibility.
So the Short Kid tells me if their health drops, they could actually die.
If Webkinz kills my baby’s lil stuffies, I’m gonna be pissed!
Er, Shan, remember that stint with Neopets about… 4 yrs back? Yeah, how you think THOSE cyberpets are doing? :groucho:
Have fun with those. I will not cave, I will not cave…
See. I can’t take the guilt of killing a stuffed animal.
