Please can I keep it? I will take care of it. I promise to feed it and walk it everyday, and keep it out of trouble.
Oh, I know where he’s been. He’s been hanging out in the preschool lost and found for the last two weeks, unclaimed.
He seemed so lonely when all the children went home and summer break began. Somehow he got into my workbag and came home with me.
He’s a rare breed called a “Monster Bug.” His fur is noticeably soft and his smile is contagious. How could someone be so careless as to lose this poor little monster bug?
I promise he’ll be safe under my watch. I’m sure he’ll keep me company this summer.
What should I name him? This big decision is making me buggy.
