When Your Kids Love the Strangest Things

Hola Bitcholas,

Kids...most kids...love the zoo. My daughter is one of those kids that loves the zoo. This makes me happy because it provides cheap entertainment and the kid just might learn something. And she loves animals and nature and all that. So much so that she endures the smell of a zoo without complaint. The same cannot be said of me. That's why I'm glad I didn't have to go to the zoo with her today. Animals are fascinating...but the collective smell of their sh*t is just not something I can ignore.

That said, my daughter did, in fact, go to the zoo today. Before I left for work I asked her the standard parental question, "what animal are you most excited to see?"

My daughter is a different type of creature who sees the world through her own, custom lens...and this is why I shouldn't have been surprised that her answer was, "the tapir!"  

Ahhhh, everybody's favorite animal, the mighty tapir. Central to so many Disney classics, like, 'The Tapir King', 'The Fox and the Tapir' and '101 Tapirs'...as well as children's cartoons like 'The Mickey Tapir Club' and 'Peppa Tapir'. With so much media influence it's no wonder she loves the tapir.  

Today, her dreams came true.

Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
