The petting zoo mishap 寶貝動物園倒楣記
Mark and Kathleen were bored one day, so they decided to go to a petting zoo.
“Look at all these beasts!” Mark shouted.
“I can’t believe they have all these different animals we can pet. There are horses, poodles, goats and bunnies,” Kathleen said.
“Look, you can even buy food to feed them,” Mark said.
Mark and Kathleen walked around for over an hour, feeding and petting the animals. They eventually got hungry, so they went to get lunch.
“After we’re finished, let’s go back to pet some more animals!” Kathleen said.
“Sure, I could spend all day in there,” Mark replied.
When they were done eating, Mark and Kathleen started to walk back to the petting zoo. They were about halfway there when Kathleen said, “I think that path is a shortcut. Let’s try it.”
They did, and soon they saw more animals.
“Look, camels!” Kathleen said. “I didn’t see them before.”
Kathleen reached up to pet a camel, but it spat at her face.
“That’s strange,” she said, as she wiped the spit off with a handkerchief.
Suddenly, Kathleen realized what had happened. They weren’t in the petting zoo anymore. They were in a zoo with wild animals!
Kathleen looked over at Mark. He was reaching his hand into an alligator pit…
