Yes, I believe you did.  But my feelings aren't hurt.  **sniff**  Not a bit.
**sniff, sniff**  I only mind because all my fellow-rodents take it so
badly.   They feel unloved and over-looked, you see.  I try to explain to
them, but it doesn't help.  They go around glum and weeping for days after
such things are said about them.

Yes, some of my best friends are marsupials too, and I'd even let them live
next door AND date my sister -- if I had a sister.  But all the same I'm not
a marsupial.
