Overheard in the Ancient Arizona fossil dig:
Teddy: “Did you know I’m going to be a paleontologist?”
Blond little girl: “Of course not. I just met you.”
Teddy: “Well I am. And I’m practicing. For when I’m all grown up. Look at that sign! It says what we can find here. Do you want to look too?”
Blond little girl: “Oh.” Pause. “Well, bye.”
Clearly he needs to work on his patter – or he’s going to be one lonely paleontologist.
We had a great time at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and saw any number of snakes, gila monsters, scorpions, hummingbirds, and saguaros, just to mention a few of the many diverse animal and plant species the desert has to offer. The view alone was worth the drive from Phoenix to Tucson.
