Just another day at Camp Zoofari

Yesterday, was quite interesting for me. The heat index was supposed to be around 110 degrees. I don't know if it actually attained that but it sure did feel very hot. Due to the heat, weather, or some unforeseen cause, two of my campers ended up getting bloody noses. Talk about gross. The first happened in the classroom so I just called a principal. I felt bad for the poor kid. It took at least 10 minutes for it to stop bleeding. My second camper's bloody nose happened in the Tropical Bird House and boy this one was a gusher. This time around I had to call a ranger to come administer first aid. And then I got to call housekeeping so they could clean up the blood of the floor. However, I did get a free ride on a golf cart back to the classroom building from this one. On a side note: I don't know what it is about kids but all of my other campers had to come up and look at the other's campers bloody noses. Why?? Oh well, it was just another day at the zoo.
