If you had to choose between people and animals, who would you pick?
When I was a kid, I decided to be a veterinarian because I loved animals. Then I realized that would involve needles and possibly blood. So I decided to be a zoologist. Then I realized that would involve picking up a lot of poo.
Recently, I decided to live vicariously through Matt Damon by watching We Bought a Zoo, and here’s what I learned:
- Sometimes bears get depressed. Just give them some Paxil.
- When a little girl calls you a “dick,” it’s cute.
- “Whatever” is the laziest word of the 20th century.
- If you keep your kids home from school, they may be eaten by zoo animals.
- There is a stage of grief that involves zebras.
- All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage for something great to happen.
Usually at the end of a post, I write what the most important lesson is that I learned from a movie. Something like this:
- To scare a cat, even a big cat, make loud noises.
So this time I’d like to write something the movie could have learned from me.
- To scare a cat, even a big cat, run a vacuum cleaner.
