I wanted to give you all a good laugh to start your weekend off! Last year my parents and I took a little “safari” trip on our way to the Cancer Treatment Center. It’s a drive-thru safari park located in Alabama. The animals are free to roam as you drive your vehicle and feed whatever creature approaches you through the windows.
In theory, this was supposed to be a fun filled day that was going to offer a delightful break from the 10-hour drive to the Cancer Treatment Center you know a disconnection from reality and reconnect with nature! Allow me to reassure you that nothing comes easy for my parents and me. Little did we know the appeal of sweet feed in a bucket would attract the largest animal in the park that day. You see, toward the end of our tour there were these beautiful, large camels that were waiting on our arrival.
As we were pulling up, it was as if, we entered the gates of camel heaven. These massive camels were surrounding our rent-a-car. It was awesome! That is until out of nowhere one of these huge exotic beast stuck his head right in the car with us. My mom immediately freaked out, which made my dear ole’ dad panic. As he hit the window to “spook” the camel, the camel perfectly positioned his head and busted through the window. AND BAM the sound of silence over shadowed the car.
With no bucket of feed and no window to our rent-a-car, I knew this was going to be an alluring trip from hell. We ended up stopping at a local Loves truck stop for clean tape.
Continuing forward to the Cancer Treatment Center you could imagine the stress, now with a busted window to replace. However the call to the rent-a-car was quite amusing, “hey a camel just busted out windshield along interstate 85”.
This was another unforgettable memory in the books in our unfortunate journey through ovarian cancer.
