Wholle Llotta Llamas
Is there any word quite so endearing as llama? It evokes such warm feelings for me; when I was a kid my uncle the Father sent us from Bolivia a llama-fur wall hanging, which held a place of honor in my bedroom for years. It was soft and fuzzy, warm and cute, the closest thing to a pet I had--if you don't count Cinnamon the impish hamster and the fish-with-the-short-lifespan. So now, llamas--which to my knowledge are not indigenous to the North American midwest, are popping up all over the place. Web has one on his site right now; and mad props to the queen of llama llovers, Llama Momma. And of course how can I keep typing llama without thinking of Jenn with two nns? It's true: llamas bring people together.
