How I Feel On Days Like This

When you work for a conservation group, the most common icebreaker at meetings is, "If you were an animal, which one would you be?" On cold, rainy days like today, I have to go with gorilla. Why? I hate schlepping through the cold rain & sitting at my desk all day with wet pant cuffs & wet shoes.

Ever see a gorilla in the rain? God, do they look miserable. Gorillas have a combination of the ability to physically express their emotion & no concern about suppressing it. That leads to photos like this, in which the gorilla looks like he's plotting murder.

And gorillas live in the RAIN FOREST. Not ideal planning.
