Ahhh…nothing like taking two over-sugared boys to the zoo for the day. It was fun, we had a great time. Got to ride the train, take a whirl on the carousel, see primates eat their own shit…good times, good times.
Yes, twice today I saw an animal reach down and have a snack. The silverback gorilla reached down and grabbed a huge handful…then brought it up to his mouth, watching all of us watching him. I’d never seen a guilty look on an animal’s face until this afternoon. And then the golden-cheeked gibbons. Sigh…we were having such a great time watching them jump and play. Until the one little dude stopped right in front of us and pooped. And my friend and I started backing up as he reached down to collect it. And then threw up in our mouths a little as he ate it.
Our sons haven’t spoken of anything else since.
