San Francisco Memories Vol. I


Back when we lived in the Bay Area, our nephew used to come out and stay with us for a couple of weeks each summer. We always enjoyed the opportunity to take him to all the local attractions. One year, we decided to head to the San Francisco Zoo. We saw lots of different animals, but the only one on that trip I remember viewing is the tapir. Now keep in mind that our nephew was about 7 at the time. We're standing in front of the tapir enclosure and our nephew pipes up loudly and says, "Hey, look! I didn't know they had five legs!" I wasn't really paying much attention to the male tapir, but sure enough, 1, 2, 3, 4...Holy Fucking Shit! That ain't no leg! We quickly redirected our nephew's attention to the giraffes next door. I looked back, feeling REALLY sorry for the poor little female in the pen.

When Adam was 2 or 3, he witnessed one of the elephants at Lincoln Park zoo defecating (this was, of course, before all the elephants there died). For weeks, he excitedly told anyone who would listen that "I saw the elephant poop!

Was it the nose?

Yeah, Grant, it was the nose. They often drag on the ground.
