Closing my eyes tightly so I don’t see what’s coming.


He did not have me at hello.  The animal handler at the Nairobi Giraffe Center could keep talking that blah, blah, blah about how clean the giraffe’s tongue was or the fact that everybody did it,  I wasn’t going for it.


But then he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse:

Pow! Right on the kisser.


I could put it on Facebook.  My mind started reeling as he reeled me in.  If the giraffe ate leaves all day, her tongue must be pretty clean, despite its purplish-black hue.  I did have anti-bacterial wipes and peppermints in my bag.




She’ll barely touch me if I put the little giraffe treat suckers guests are given to entice the animal to come hither and pucker up on the tip of my tightly pursed lips.


“Don’t even think about it”, Miss V warns.


Whoever is taking the picture better not miss the shot, ’cause this is a once in a lifetime deal. And the picture better get tons of likes…
