Have I run this picture before?
It's Bean Sprout about three weeks after he came to stay with us. Four years ago.
We'll be celebrating the anniversary of his arrival again, on Valentine's Day. I might even get out the spare, emergency, extra-special rubber piggy for a present. The clean one. There are three piggies in rotation on the floor, and they do get dirty. But there's an unused one in a drawer, waiting for an extraordinary occasion.
See that tiny pink blob just above Bean Sprout's head? That's his first piggy (before it even got dirty). Cranky just knew to spend stupid money on it at the upscale pet store. Bean Sprout loved it right away. That's why we kept buying backups, and leaking them out to him whenever it felt, aw, special.
I can tell you all this because Bean Sprout, despite his many amazing accomplishments, doesn't know how to read.
