Suburbs of My Discontent

According to this article, the guinea pig was embraced by upper-class households during the Renaissance.

I attempted to embrace, quite literally, our new guinea pig over the weekend, and he responded by plunging his horrid little teeth into my finger. Later, while waiting at the ER, my antibiotics in my throbbing hand, I began to embrace other theories about the Renaissance guinea pig like this one. Like, people may have enjoyed killing them too.
