We didn’t know why this giraffe was sad. Maybe the other giraffes had been mean to it. We also were not sure if the ostrich was trying to comfort it or taunt it. We had so many questions. And no good way to communicate our support or our desire to adopt the sad giraffe and make a beautiful home for it in the gallery.
Obviously, as you can guess, today we went to the zoo to see the giraffes and also the capybaras. Surprisingly, we had the most meaningful interaction with the meerkats. The meerkats had a teeny tiny meerkat baby they transported around in their mouth and they kept parading it in front of us in a display that was clearly a flex. We watched this show for a long time and we think the meerkats enjoyed seeing us appropriately impressed.
