91. Lessons from a trip to the Zoo with a small kid

Lesson #1: Who cares about the animals, anyway?

Lesson #2: You take your interests with you

Here’s my Hephalump styled elephant from today.

Lesson #3: Watching is boring, while doing is not

Lesson #4: Play creates connections in a way animal-watching doesn’t

Lesson #5: Kids make up stories FAST — even if they’re wrong

Innocent looking rabbits become deadly burning enemies in the midday sun

Lesson #6: Metal gets warm in the sun — and kids forget this

Lesson #7: I had a lot of fun, because I was also researching

Lesson #8: Zoos could use some experience designers

“It’s funny how that thing is still the most popular here. It’s been there since I was a kid!”
