Three funny things happened at the aquarium yesterday... First, while we were all walking to the aquarium, Ree tripped and smacked into the sidewalk so hard that folks nearby gasped. Their gasps quickly turned to snickers when, instead of crying, she immediately grabbed the precious churro she had dropped and started blowing it off while saying adamantly to us "It ok, it clean, I blow it off, I can still eat it." Second, while we were in the splash zone, Ro and Ree were jostling around with a bunch of other kids at a water play area and a little boy opened his mouth really wide and chomped down on Ro's hand. I pulled Ro out of there and told his mom, "Oh my gosh, he just bit my daughter!" But instead of apologizing or talking to the little boy about it, the lady just looked at me kind of vaguely, shrugged a little, and said "Well he was playing with that toy first..." Wow. Then, while we were waiting in line to get back into the aquarium after lunch, an older man in a khaki-colored jacket stepped around Ro and Ree to cut in front of us. No big deal, and I didn't even give it another thought until TubaDad later whispered, "Did you see who that man and woman were?" I can't believe he was so right and I was so oblivious! Grabbed a quick surreptitious video of them later, can you tell who they are from my dark little video? Heh. Funky day.
