"She's perfect mom!" I told her, as we went through the pet store. "I'll call her Wren."
"Are you sure honey? Ferrets are really stinky animals..." My mom said, trying to get me to look at the gerbils. "What about one of these?"
"No mom. I want Wren." I said it with all the seriousness I could muster, "You said I could pick any pet."
I knew I had maid her regret using those exact words, but there wasn't anything she could do to change that now.
