On Saturday it was a practically perfect day in every way.
What better occasion to head out to, Woodland Zoo does one need?
We were smart in our timing of this outing because, I knew being that it was sunny day(practically perfect day) here in Seattle, that we would not be the only ones to have the brilliant idea to go to the zoo.
But, we are a family of big kids now who like to sleep in on the weekend. I knew that if we got there in the afternoon when all the families with lils would be heading home for nap time that we would be in good shape.
And sure enough, we got primo parking, and like I said it was a practically perfect day in every way.
Except... when you start to notice the depressed look that all the animals seem to have.
It makes me think of that movie, 12 monkeys with Brad Pitt. Who has seen it? It is a crazy movie where some crazy activist people let all the animals loose from the zoo. Good movie. It made me respect Brad Pitt as an actual actor.
Ok back to depressed animals. Has anyone else ever walked away from the zoo feeling sad? I wonder sometimes why my brain works like this, because like I said it really was a practically perfect day in every way, but somehow I felt sad for the animals.
Not enough to pull a 12 monkeys scenario, still it did leave me feeling a little bit more in the animal activist camp than I am on a regular basis.
