Zoo-ducation


Tapirs having sex...
Lemurs enjoying a 69...

Luckily, The ShortBus is only three and had NO IDEA about what was going on, and didn't bother to ask me about it.

*Flash back to several years ago when I took my niece to the zoo, with a friend of mine and her daughter (both girls were about 9 years old), and the monkeys were having sex. My niece asked what was going on, and as I stumbled and fumbled ("well, when a mommy and a daddy monkey love each other very much..."), my friend's daughter interrupted me to explain in explicit language exactly what was happening. I spent the rest of the day embarassed, and wondering if her mom would leave bruises when she kicked my ass. I literally planned to just stand there and take the beating.*

The best comment of the day had to be when we saw the monkeys cleaning one another, and CSB leans over and starts grooming the ShortBus's hair, after about 30 seconds of nit-picking (*snicker*) ShortBus says, "Mommy......are you sure about this?"

After the laughter subsided, I said, "meh, I'm never really sure about anything, but this seems to work."

Yes, it was a good day. The Funny© visited us several times throughout, The Happy© and The Smiling© also spent quite a bit of time with us, and although exhausted, I'm home with a glass of wine, and all smiles.

Life is good.
