I had a nice post all written up about this photo. It was about underestimating our kids’ capacity to understand the brutal law of the jungle. I even had an intelligent-sounding reference to Lord of the Flies and an explanation involving five little monkeys and a crocodile and why taunting is dangerous to your health (hint: the crocodile goes SNAP!)
And then as I was trying to format my post the very angelic-looking inspiration behind the post itself decided to elbow me in his sleep. Instead of applying my chosen format my finger slipped on my phone screen and the whole post for deleted instead.
No, I don’t have the heart to recreate it. Yes, I researched all the various autosave and restore options. Yes, I even managed to contact the WordPress support chat on my phone in the middle of the night. No, it cannot be sucked back out of the ether.
So instead you can just see the photo and contemplate yourself the implications of this
dinosaur-eat-donkey world we live in.
Come to think of it, wasn’t this a scene from Jurassic Park?
OH MY GOD DID PHIL TIPPETT FAIL TO DO HIS JOB AGAIN???
Yes, that’s it. The dinosaur ate my post. The toddler was an accomplice / accessory after the fact. It’s a conspiracy. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
