Fake animal exhibit has fantastic air conditioning
I promised the youngsters that the people I was with and I would visit the zoo while the people I was with and I were on getaway going to see their Grandparents! Unfortunately, I did not realize how hot it would be down here.
Every day, the youngsters would ask if the people I was with and I were going to the zoo this month and I kept putting it off, hoping for a least a single day where the heat index fell below 100.
As the dates the people I was with and I were to leave got closer and closer I felt exhausting that I had lied to my young youngsters but there was no way I was going to walk around all day, outside, without any air conditioning. I told my Dad how I was feeling and she came up with an idea. It seems there is an exotic pet shop just out of town that sells all kinds of reptiles and even a few mammals like monkeys and lemurs, and such. And, it is air conditioned, my Dad recommended the people I was with and I go there and tell the youngsters it is a small zoo. I did not like the method of lying even more to my youngsters although I did not want to disappoint them either so I called ahead to make sure the youngsters were welcome and after that I loaded up to “look at the critters”. The youngsters had a blast. The pet store employees were so patient and they let the youngsters hold a few of the calmer reptiles. They also got to pet some doves and even a baby skunk. I loved the critters too but my favorite area was the nice cool air coming from the air conditioning vents. Of course, I provided each employee a nice tip for being such fantastic “zoo” handlers.
