I entered the snickerdoodle cake in a bakeoff at my office again on Monday. But despite Casey’s peptalk to the cake (which included him bringing the cake really close to his face and whispering “I want you to go in those peoples’ mouths, and I want you to taste DELICIOUS), it did not win a prize. Though I did hear one of the judges was fighting for me, but ultimately we could not stand up to the cherry tart.
Casey and I also attended Zoo Lights at the Houston Zoo Monday night with our friends, Hannah and Chase. We saw many animals and lights. For some reason, I kept saying “The kids would really love this.” Despite the fact that no one I was with had kids. I just felt like it was the right thing to say when you go to the zoo with a group of 20-somethings.
I spent a lot of time making cat noises (aka “meow”) to all the animals. They had no reaction. Not even the sleeping lions.
After asking the lady who works at the zoo if there was a height limit for the tunnel, and her answering “no, people take wedding pictures in there,” I crawled in and pretended to be a cockroach, because that’s what felt appropriate at the time.
I also found Nemo.
I know I’m the first person to make that joke, so no need to express how original I am.
This guy was dreaming about the time we went prom together:
I also sent my mom pictures of snakes, because she hates snakes, and I thought it would be really funny.
Then my mom asked where I was as if there are so many places I could be where there are huge snakes. Needless to say, it wasn’t the reaction I was hoping for.
