Our Saturday was half road trip, half field trip. Rama, Sidra and I drove a couple hundred miles to the San Diego Zoo. They played Connect Four, while I bopped my head to the Shins. We took turns dancing and making faces at people passing by on the freeway.
At the zoo, we picked out our favorite animals and studied their faces with pen and paper. I imagined what life was like behind those fences and, while lounging around in the sunshine didn’t look so bad, I decided we were far better off on this side of the fence.
