my friend was telling me about this little old neighborhood she was driving thru that had the most unusual animals. i, of course, immediately headed over. i pulled up, and to my astonishment, was a pet zebra. it was just so odd to see a zebra walking around in someone's front yard.
baby R really liked it.
when i picked up little S from school, i told baby R to tell S about what animal we saw. he, of course, can't do that yet and S said just tell me mom.
so i said..
"o.k. i'll give you a hint. it looks like a horse, but it has black and white stripes all over it's body."
little S said..
"a dead zebra."
i said.. "no, a real zebra!"
little S said... "was it dead?"
i said.. "nooo. it was alive! at someone's house!"
S said... "was it in the back of a truck?"
i said.. "no... it was happy and alive in a yard."
little S.. "oh."
we also saw a ponkey. a pony and a donkey. or maybe a muleony? dony? whatever. it was weird. but cute.
