This has to be one of my favourite animals – they are so majestic. I remember going to the Pretoria Zoo and actually being able to touch the giraffe as he munched on the trees just above the bridge. When Dylan was little he has a giraffe bookmark (soft and teddy like) which he totally loved and teethed on :).
I have a funny story – well I enjoyed it anyway: Partner at the time had started a new job in property sales and his mates at the office decided that he needed to be initiated, so they left him a note on his desk to call Mr G.Raff. The call went something like this:
Partner: ‘Hello, may I speak to Mr G.Raff please’
Person on the other line: ‘I think you have the wrong number, there is no such person here’
Partner: ‘Are you sure? Because I got a message to call Mr G.Raff on this number?’
**Insert giggles from said mates**
Person on the other line: ‘Yes, I am sure.’
Partner: ‘Which company am I through to?’
Person on the other line: ‘The Johannesburg Zoo, Sir’
Hope that made you giggle, even if just a little.
