Birthday wishes


Bobby, deh ever catch dat gorilla
that busted outa da zoo and punched you in da eye?

(Mama Boucher, Waterboy)

Ok, my birthday is coming up. The big 3-1. I finally figured out what I want so I called Sei. And what did he do when I told him my wish?? Laughed. A lot. Really loudly. But I don't care. It's what I want:

(click pic for more info)

Yes- I want to be a zookeeper for a day!! For real. For $225 they let you hang with a keeper all day and take care of the animals- face to face. I think that would be so neat!! Granted, I'm scared of wild animals, but these are zoo animals. I wouldn't want to happen upon a giraffe or a hippo as I walked thru the neighborhood, but how cool would it be to help feed one at the zoo? Ever since we got Wormy I've just been more interested in taking care of animals. (No- I don't want a dog.) When I told my mom what I wanted this year, she said "Don't you already run a zoo?" My sister said she'd donate $25 to the cause. (She understands my weirdness.) My husband said (after he stopped laughing) "I think it may cost too much..." (Hey- it wouldn't just be a birthday gift. My bday is 2 days before Mother's Day. I'm willing to roll it all into one gift...) Oh well, I guess will just hold on to that dream... Maybe for the big 3-2.

Weekly Muffin Report: The muffin is still there, but I lost 2 pounds. I worked out 4 times this week and cut out some crappy food.

Well you are adventurous aren't you! If that is what you really want then I think he should do it!

ps. My 3 year old daughter just licked your muffin on my computer screen. Maybe I should feed her some lunch.

You are willing to pay them, so you can work for them? Ok. Still a kid at heart I see!

Yay! good job on the 2 pounds!

Congrats on the weight loss!

JennaG said...

Love yo9ur wish. Sounds fun. If I get any birthday money on the 7th, my big 4-0, I'll send it your way to make your wish come true.

You can feed a Giraffe for free in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, just across from El Paso. I have pictures to prove it.

I think that would be SO fun! Way to go on the 2 lbs. Better than gaining, like me. :-(

Jenny said...

That's a great birthday wish!! My 30th is this year and I told my hubby I want a dog (Lab, German Shepherd, something big). He laughed too.

Congrats on the weight loss too. Every pound is something. I'm impressed that you managed to get in 4 workouts!! I'm trying to squeeze some time for that into my schedule too. I have certainly had no weight loss recently...
