Little Ray’s, our local reptile rescue, does events such as birthday parties. When Quentin turned 4, they came by with an assortment of creatures for the kids to see, learn about, and hold.
Quentin’s birthday party had to get rescheduled, as it was originally scheduled on the day that hurricane Dorian came through our area.
One of the animals was a bearded dragon. Quentin was looking pretty sad. I asked what was wrong.
“It doesn’t breathe fire. It’s not a real dragon.”
