The conversation went on and on and I admitted for the past week all the entries has in fact been revolves around politics and a whole bunch of crap it produces. Fine then, to make things a little better for her I told myself for the next post I aint touching about politics…
And so we decided to hop into the car and drive to some place interesting and perhaps I could blog about it, which is what I’m doing now.
In no more than 10 minutes we found ourselves in front of the entrance of an exotic animal exhibition. I swear to God we didn’t expect to come across such exhibition that particular day, but still we were pleased to be doing something different for a change.
Looking at the various types of animals got me totally excited. Since I’m a fan of reptilian creatures, I was in for a treat. Various species of reptiles can be found there; snakes, frogs, lizards, turtles and my personal favorite, the tortoises. Only alligators were missing.
Then there’s all kinds of mammals too; the wallaby, raccoons, foxes, rabbits, sugar gliders, and goats. Yea man, even goats.
But the toast of the day was how I finally found the courage to overcome my greatest fear which has been tormenting my soul for ages now; Getting up close with a dog. Yea dog.
Go ahead, laugh. I’m sure everyone has their own fear anyway. So happen that In my case, it was dogs. And geckos. And snakes. And ghouls. And elementals. And chupacabras. And ostriches. And…you get my point, I’m sure everybody freaks the shit out of at least something.
So anyway this was no ordinary dog. I mean, come on, this was no poodle nor Chihuahua, mind you. Gimme some credits, will ya? This was a gray Timber wolf that I came face to face with. The beast. The real deal wolf, no less.
Initially the situation was rather intense. It was like a scene from Man vs Beast. Mano-e-doggo. I was terrified I almost shit in my pants. But it kind of surprised me how docile and adorable a dog, or a wolf for that matter can be. Never thought I’d say this but now I wish I could own one. Thanks to Cosmetic (the wolf’s name) my fears all these years were unfounded.
Both of us concurred that it was a great outing, an eye-opener kind of outing.
While having our dinner near-by right after, she was mentioning something about proboscis monkey, a type of macaque with a long nose which sadly was not part of the exhibition. Well, good then. I’ve had enough writing about politicians this whole week anyway.
Him, with the cuties.
