Buy the Kids a Shiny Toy and They'll Play with the BoxIt's time for a birthday! Bomassa Gorilla turns a year old on August 4th. So that means presents. You know how it goes with kids though. We try to get them things in the colors and shapes they should love, but our curious and intelligent children would rather play with something more ordinary.
Anyway, Bomassa and Apollo were not the least bit interested. I never saw either one of them go anywhere near the thing last Thursday when I went out to visit them. Yes, it would have been terribly cute to get a shot of Apollo or his big brother sitting in that car and trying to steer it around. In fact, that's why the car was there. People in charge of publicity for the zoo were kind of hoping to get a nice shot of the kids in the car, lol.
But alas, as you already know, our eager gorilla boys spent a good part of the day practicing their climbing skills. And then Bomassa turned to the mud, of all things! Between a high tree to climb and gooey mud, a cute little car just did not stand a chance.
|Car? There's a car to play with? Never mind that, I've got mud!|
