“The Bluths” by Matt Chase.

I saw a sloth at the zoo yesterday!
….but he was hiding in a corner & wouldn’t show me his adorable face…. even though I stood there for a solid 17 minutes staring at his fur and silently pleading with him to grace me with his gaze.
He didn’t give a shit. He’s a sloth.
I got to watch an elephant take a bath though.
& a giraffe stuck out her tongue at me.
& a red panda grimaced at me (I think she had indigestion).
There was also a donkey in a huge enclosure by himself with a sign beside his home stating that he was unfriendly and fought with every donkey they tried to pair him up with (roommates DO suck, so I get where he’s coming from). The zookeepers finally gave up trying to play matchmaker and now he lives alone and gets a dose of socialization every day by being led around the zoo on a leash. I was so glad that they used a wipe board to tell us the story behind his sparse cage situation in the farm yard.
Perk of having a teacher for a sister = you can still go back to school supply shopping even though you’re not going to school yourself.
Today’s post on my vintage book blog features this little guy by Brian Wildsmith. Coincidentally, I just rewatched the episode of Breaking Bad where Walt tells Jesse that he’s a blow fish. You know, this.
So. There’s that.
I’d love to have a blowfish in a tank sitting on my desk. Alongside another tank with a jellyfish in it. Also - a chameleon. I saw a chameleon at a pet store the other day and he was the coolest little dude ever. I was so tempted to buy him UNTIL I saw that he was $90 and a note stating chameleons scare very easily and they can literally die of fright. I’d probably see a spider, scream …. and end up killing him.
So, no adorable chameleon pets for me.
