Ever since Hammy found out he'd be featured in Scholastic's Book Fair Author Video, there's been no living with him.
He demands only organic veggies to stuff his cheeks with. He expects us to line his hamster wheel with shimmery, gold fabric and bring him fresh water every hour in a silver pitcher. And he squeals whenever I'm on the phone. He's afraid he'll miss a call from MTV, Oprah or Hamster Time, where he thinks he'll be named Hamster of the Year.
Sheesh! Who knew such a little hamster could get such a big head?
All this hamster hooplah just because Hammy's video will be part of the Scholastic video shown to middle school students before they head to their school book fairs this coming fall.
I mean, big deal. It's not as though he's as famous as this hamster . . .
