I remember going to the zoo when I was little. I LOVED the zoo. I’m an animal lover, anyhow. But the zoo always felt like the most exciting experience to me. My mom would pack snacks (something else I love a lot) and we would load up our little, red wagon. We would spend the whole day walking around zoo, looking at animals and eating snacks.
I always wished that there were more touchable animals, though. Petting the goats and rubbing on the cattle is better than nothing at all, I guess. But why don’t they let you touch the really cool guys? What about the giraffes? Or maybe the monkeys? Throw me a llama!
I heard about the zoo in San Diego – They let folks pay a fairly reasonable fee to participate in a “Roar and Snore.” You can go to the zoo to spend the night! What an experience. I’ve never really had a desire to visit San Diego…until now!
Today feels like a good zoo day. I wonder if my boss will understand where I’m coming from if I go tell him, “I’m leaving work to go the zoo.” I don’t have a little, red wagon. But I do have money for snacks.
