The sign said: DO NOT FEED THE BEARS! So I guess that annoying man with the cell phone was safe…for now.
I had seen plenty of snakes swallow mice whole before. “Then how come I couldn’t do it myself?” I thought as Nancy wrapped her arms around me and started in with the Heimlich.
“How about this one?” Nancy said holding up the stuffed alligator. “No, that won’t work. Too scary,” I replied. “But the tag says for ages 3 and up,” she answered. “I don’t care if it’s for ages zero and up,” I yelled back. “I’m not going to get a wink of sleep at night with that scary thing wrapped up in my arms!”
Nothing but eating, sleeping and mating? I think living at the zoo would be the life. Which is why I put on this anteater costume and hopped into the pen, I explained to the armadillo.
I looked down and read the sign: Free camel rides – enter here. “Perfect,” I thought as I put the marker away and motioned for the cell phone guy to come over towards the lion’s pen.
