The San Diego zoo came to SLC last week and they stayed at our hotel. On Thursday they brought a couple penguins and a sloth out for us to see. In other words, my job is cooler than yours.
I was surprised to find myself getting realy nervous whenever the penguin would get near me. They are a lot more substantial than other birds and I found myself holding as still as possible. The sloth on the other hand was adorable. It was so odd looking I couldn't get over it. Getting to touch one was definitely one of the highlights of my year.
