On the way to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle:
Me: We’re going to see sooo many animals today! What is your favorite, Marcail?
Marcail: ummm… Elmo

At the zoo: Marcail insisted that she be allowed to show the gorilla her tattoo, kissed an orangutan (through the glass) and asked to read the lion a bedtime story (because I said he was sleepy). Oh… And she kissed a random boy square on the mouth… I was mortified!
