Today was Secondo's 11th birthday.
The pig fairy visited Secondo this time, but he wasn't disappointed to have to spend his birthday at home building the lego sets he received. His older brother, on the other hand, was completely bent out of shape that he had bronchitis (oh yes, we are very grateful that their father is a doctor) but no fever, so he had to go to school.
Proof that Secondo lives on a sheep farm (albeit a small one)? His grandparents offered him the choice between a new bicycle and a pair of his own fancy hand shears to use when getting his sheep ready to show.
Is anyone really surprised that he chose the shears?
