What it must be like being inside a kid's imagination

Tiny hamster eating too much tiny Thanksgiving food is just so cute

I love Thanksgiving. Family and food and football and more food and Fall and friends and even more food. And though all of that makes me smile, nothing captures the essence of holiday better than this tiny hamster: it ate so much tiny Thanksgiving food that you can see the guilt and worry on its face. » 11/18/14 11:10pm 11/18/14 11:10pm
