A little over 10 years ago, while living in what some might call the great state of Texas, The X and I decided we would take the kids to a drive thru wildlife ranch. It was a spur of the moment decision as we were drive south from Austin, and a great decision.
It was not like anything I’d ever seen. We were able to drive through 400 acres of open land that had buffalo, giraffe, rhinos, ostrich, antelope, elk, zebra, llama and more.
As we were driving, a zebra stuck his head inside the drivers window and took the feed bag right out of The X’s lap. It was soooooo funny. We were all laughing so much, that this zebra had the audacity to stick his head inside a car.
(not the actual photo, but similar.)
Towards the end of the drive, an ostrich, came up and stuck it’s head right up to the passenger window and started pecking at it. Hil-ari-ous! We couldn’t stop laughing. He was pecking so hard, I thought the window was going to break. The X assured me it wouldn’t, and we drove on, laughing. As we drove on, he started to chase after us. I felt like I was in the middle of a Hollywood movie.
It was a good time, and I can’t wait to do something similar again. It was definitely worth the scare of the ostrich, and obviously left me with some great memories if I’m telling the story over 10 years later.
