“We’re here.” Jess announced as she parked the car. They both got out and walked up to the fence. “What do you think?”
“Llamas?” Cindy asked looking doubtfully.
“I thought they could be a good addition to our farm.” Jess explained.
“But we grow corn.” Cindy countered.
“They would be a nice and profitable sideline. There is a good market for their wool.”
“But aren’t they dangerous?” Cindy asked.
“Yes llamas are extremely dangerous. If you ever see one, you must shout out: “LOOK OUT THERE ARE LLAMAS!”” Jess replied.
“Really?” Cindy’s mouth was wide open. Jess laughed.
“They can be a bit stroppy and bad tempered at times, but I’m sure we can handle them. Anyway it’s an alpaca, not a llama.” Jess informed her.
“What’s the difference?”
“Llamas are bigger and have longer faces, and banana shaped ears apparently.”
Cindy still looked at the alpaca doubtfully.
