1. Brody helped me prepare for my upcoming Mt. Meru hike by dragging me up Cowles Mountain here in San Diego. It’s like preparing for a triathlon by dipping your toes in a wading pool, but it’s a start. The highest point in San Diego is still 12,000 feet lower than Mt. Meru.
2. Apollo, who has never hiked a day in his life, mocks Brody’s expression in the above picture.
3. I took my son to a birthday party I almost forgot to RSVP to and they had a wildlife show! I don’t know who was more excited, the kids or the adults. The educator brought along a wallaby, a chinchilla, an iguana, an alligator, a few other things I don’t remember and then- this porcupine.
I had no idea porcupines could be so cute. He sat there munching his corn like a rock star, holding onto that cob for dear life like Eddie Van Halen about to unleash a 20 minute guitar solo, completely unaffected all by the attention. Ohnomnomnom I have corn and nothing else matters nomnomnom.
Have a wonderful Passover, Easter, or simple spring weekend! Hope it’s a great one!
