The lights are on but no ones home. At least that's what I want her to think. Secretly I am hidden under an extraordinary mountain of blankets, but shhhhh, don't tell her.

Who is her? I hear you ask. Her, is my human, she goes by some fairly normal human name, but that is not important. I on the other hand, am the far more integral part to this story called Life. I am Hammy, the festively plump, ingenous hamster burdoned with the responsibility of spinning the wheels inside my human's head, guiding her through the daily slug of adult responsibility. Some could say I was the real brains of the operation (pun fully intended), the Master of Puppets, Chief Wheel Spinner,....Hamster Supreme...if you will.

Now you might be wondering what such a magnificent hamster such as myself is doing hiding under blankets instead of revving up the wheel and helping my human stumble through her daily routine? The answer is simple. It is far too much like hard work, and the joy of hiding here in the warmth and darkness is so much more appealing. Besides, it will do her good to be on auto-pilot for a change, I can't do everything! 

*********

I spoke too soon. It would appear that I actually do have to do everything round here. Just when you think you can succumb to your glorious nest, your human decides that she is going to make coffee. Without the actual coffee.

"Human" - no response. Great start.

"HUMAN"

"Mmmm" ahhhh acknowledgement.

"Don't you think you want to put coffee in the machine before you switch it on" 

"Hmmm? Oh yeah, probably not a bad idea"

Crisis averted. This is going to be a long day.
