breakfast with giraffes
i can't possibly do his story justice, partly because i don't have his accent, but the gist of it was, "you never really think about how big a giraffe's head is until you see one up close," followed by the animal getting its head stuck in the pickup's cab, his wife screaming "AAAH! AAAH! AAAH!" as she kicked at it, and the giraffe's horns tearing up the ceiling of his cab while it blew snot all over his children, who were cowering under the dashboard. "after that," he said, "we drove straight home and didn't say a single word the whole time."
you probably had to be there.
