and other tales of desperation
OMG are you freaking kidding me????? That's the cutest thing EVER. Screw saving the world from AIDS, I wanna hug lion cubs for a living.
You should check with your office if a cat will do, I can bring over Van Gogh. Granted, he's not as big and doesn't have giant claws and sharp teeth...but he is fuzzy!
ONCE AGAIN I maintain we are soul mates. When I showed up for my interview to be a zoo volunteer they asked me why I wanted to volunteer there and I said, not a joke, that my interest was only in cuddling with baby lions. They LOL-ed and assured me I'd never get close to an animal cub of any kind. Whatevs. If I didn't have educational debt I would become a dolphin trainer (also not a joke).
Education debt is the absolute worst way to ruin a career in lion cub cuddling :( And, unfortunately, I'm right there with you, sister.
