The pandemic’s been hard on us all.

April 8, 2021


I have gained a few pounds over the past year, and apparently these animal crackers have suffered the same fate. We’ve had them for afternoon snack several times, and when the kids would ask me, “What is this one?” , I would ask, “What does it look like to you?”, hoping to probe them into deeper thinking.

This last time, I actually looked at them. What the what?

I think my photo is going to turn out blurry, dang it. If you can make out any of these blobby beasts, I could use some help with identification.

    I think the bison is a lion. That’s my only contribution. This is a fun game though!

    I think the one labeled ‘dog’ is a donkey.

    And the one labeled ‘rhino’ is a moose.

    My 9-year-old and 7-year-old examined the cookies. They concluded thusly:
    The hippo is a bear.
    The rhino is a moose.
    The cat is a tiger.
    The bison is a lion.
    The dog is a donkey.
    The polar bear/anteater? Maybe a sheep?

    The freshman 15 has become COVID-15. So, to animal crackers, is it 15 grams of added weight????
