Now, there's something you don't see every day

I just read a message from my friend, Karen, whose subject line read, "Guess What I Saw Today???!!!!"

Gosh, I just didn't know, but I love playing these games.

Uhhmmm....the pope? No, no. That can't be it. Otherwise, she would have written "Guess Who I Saw Today???!!!"

Uh, lessee...A gas station with prices listed at less than $2.00 per gallon?

A cutting-edge refrigerator design that not only stores the cold and frozen food, but also unloads the shopping bags into its innards and is capable of purging itself of those science-experiment-gone-sadly-amok mashed potatoes left over from February?

Buy one, get twenty free cases of Cherry Coke Zero at the grocery?

An issue of "O" magazine that doesn't feature Oprah on the cover? Because this would be, like, a miracle in the world of publishing. Oprah's done more covers than Cindy Crawford, Princess Diana and Tyra Banks combined. Of course, she had to get her own magazine to do it, but I digress.

Anyway....

A bathing suit designed to make the wearer look forty pounds lighter?

As it turns out, I was wrong on all counts. What Karen and her kids saw through the underwater window was the Indianapolis Zoo's big polar bear, farting as he swam, with big air bubbles trailing behind him, rising lazily to the surface of the water.

I hate that I missed that.

That reminds me...have you heard about the time Lisa T. and I took the kids to the zoo and the Walrus put on a little show for us? Oh, my heavens........................
And, there was the time that the lion backed up and shot urine all over Alex, drenching his shirt and forcing us to rip it off, toss it away, and have to go home for a shower.....that zoo is a quite the place! LOL!

HA! Cute post. When I first read Karen's message, I thought "2 pink lines?", because that is typical of cmomc! I guess that owuld be a surprise, though, seeing that her nutbaby is still a newborn. ;)
