...you just realize that you completely forgot to bury your child's hamster...which has been dead almost TWO WHOLE WEEKS and is sitting in your garage in his little cardboard burial box.
And then, when you and the 11 year old finally go out to lay the poor furry creature to rest, the 11 year old can't resist and actually peeks in the box while you squeal in disgust.
"Was it gross?' You ask, because you are completely grossed out at the very THOUGHT of a two week old dead hamster in a box.
"No, he looked the same," is the nonchalant reply. "But he did smell a bit funky."
