I have recently come to realize how well a sense of humor can diffuse a tense situation. Since things have gotten rather hairy at times between the two of us this week (no hamster pun intended), I decided that Pen and I needed some afternoon fun.
This was the result:
We had a lot of fun and laughed a ton. Bud found the whole thing rather alarming and kept running away, but Big wanted to join in.

I guess the humor must have worked. Fine! went from telling me how annoying I was this morning to making me a bouquet of flowers in the afternoon to tell me how much she loves me. I'm glad Pen re-emerged and I hope she's here to stay for awhile.
