The Story of the Don'ts - and how that relates to animals.
When you were raising your children - if you told them something and it started with the word 'Don't' - did your children stop what they were doing? At least with my kids you could bet that would be the very thing that they did.
Kid number 1 - the doc -
We used to go to the parks all the time and this particular in Barrington, Illinois had animals in it. They had a donkey behind a fence. Well he and his friend got ahead of the rest of us and I said "Don't put you hand inside the fence."
What do you think my son did, but put it in the fence and by the time I got there - he had been bit by a donkey - the park's animals were all healthy - but off to the doctor we went just to make sure.
Okay - child number 2 - the teacher. We took them to safaris when they were young too and we fed the animals. There were signs all over the place to feed them with you hand wide open and not with your fingers. My daughter is feeding them with her fingers and I said, "Remember, don't feed them with your finger." She did and she got nipped - off we went to get a bandaide and found out that all the animals health were up to date. The first one gets the doctor, the second gets the bandaide.
Which now brings us to the grandson. We feeding geese, "Don't get too close I say." He gets his bread and runs down the street - the geese and it was a beautiful site to behold - came flying over to where we were - only problem was they landed between us and the grandson. He was scared to death and we tried to get to him as soon as possible with all the geese hissing and wanting bread. We got there, but he sure was scared. At least he didn't get bit! We're making progress.
