Not to sound apathetic, but welcome to my world.
Really, welcome to my world.
The zoo was the quickest way home from school and overlooks one of my favorite places on earth (no, I'm not telling you where).
It's free, you can pack a lunch, and yes, the animals may very well love it if you do now.
"I agree, giraffes can be insincere, but they're under a lot of pressure to stay thin."
But me, oh Lord,
I go for penguins.
You don't have to unzip your beaded coin purse to spend the day at the Henry Vilas Zoo, at least until the carousel opens (it used to be a nickel, along with the train; I think the stage coach was a dime, big money back then).
My favorite zoo candy: something chewy and licorice. This should be a photo of Snaps, but these Hot Tamales Licorice Flavored Jelly Beans are more seasonal and a very good black jelly bean. You thought I was going to forget to mention candy, didn't you?Let's hope things don't get so bad you see a whole new approach to bring out visitors, you know like, "The zoo, it's what's for dinner."
