Please don't feed the animals
We'll set aside the debate about petting zoos - or zoos in general - for another day, because the last thing the world needs right about now is another raging argument between polarized people. It's been a bruising period in my city, province, nation and nation next door, so I'd like to set it all aside for a bit and simply appreciate a moment our kids got to have a few months ago.
We were on a long drive home to visit extended family. We were tired and, frankly, a little cranky. So when the Big Red Apple (see here for some history) loomed in the windshield, we took the exit. It seemed even more kitschy than ever, and we've put it on the no-stop list for the forseeable future as a result. But a connected moment with these lovelies seemed to perk our mood a bit, and sometimes that's all you really need.
Your turn: How do you turn a frown upside down? Any suggestions?
