Mistook

I went to the zoo. I went to the muskrat cage. The muskrat looked at me glumly.

I said, “Is it hard to live in a zoo? I mean do you wish you were out in the wild?”

The muskrat said, “I don’t know the wild. I’ve never lived outside of the zoo.”

So I broke open the muskrat’s cage, went in and grabbed the muskrat, and snuck the muskrat out to my car.

We went to a McDonald’s drive in. I got three orders of fries. I handed them to the muskrat who ate them and then threw up in my car. The muskrat apologized. I felt badly. Sometimes I think I know what’s best for someone else, but I’m often wrong.
