"That's my other hamster," Josh said. He shook his head sadly. "He's not a holdin' hamster."
"He bites," explained Michelle, Josh's mom. "So I got him a hamster he could hold."
Today, we drove the now 17-year-old Josh home after a week-long visit with us. Michelle had thoughtfully prepared some vegan blueberry muffins for Heidi. "Try one," she offered, "they have oatmeal, flax seed, chia seed, and chai tea."
It was delicious-- warm and cinnamony, and the texture was super-dense and moist. I like these," I said, they're kind of like portable oatmeal."
A little while later Josh came in the kitchen. "What's this?" he asked.
"You'll love it!" I promised. "It's holdin' oatmeal."
