sea world story...


my mother-in-law told me this about a friend of hers. she took her son down to Sea World in San Diego for the day recently. the boy has Down's but is pretty high functioning. they had fun watching the shows and exhibits but then, this being during the summer and the park being crowded, suddenly they were separated and the boy was missing. as any parent knows, this is very frightening. she looked around, backtracked and after a while was starting to panic when finally, she found him. he was soaking wet and they'd already had a full day, so she decided that was enough and they went home. that evening, she was checking on the boy in his room and was surprised to see, standing on his bed, a live penguin! apparently he had found a way to catch the bird at the penguin exhibit and had put it in his backpack... he was smuggled out of the park without notice and didn't make a peep the whole car trip either. mom hurriedly called Sea World and told them what happened. they told her to put the penguin in the bathtub with cold water and ice cubes and they would come get it. and so they did... aren't kids fun!

That is funny.
How on earth?
I've seen those things they are rather large and they look kind of mean.

hahaha, no way!

looking at your sidebar..The Satanic Verses. Have you read that?

it's hard to believe, but I think it's true! sounds almost like something I'd seen on tv...

hey Emma, I am in the middle of "Satanic Verses", but not actively reading it... takes some digestion (much like "Ulysses"). "On the Road" on the other hand is a fun read, rich, but easily digested - and since it's 50 years old this year, I recommend it highly. "Into the Wild" is a similar story but even lighter in substance. of course you could see the theatrical version too...

Ahhh Tom this is so funny!

I have a son with Down Syndrome as well and he would be very willing and able to kidnap a penguin! LOL

Yeah, kids are the BEST!
