Babysitting an Elephant
I was very trepidatious about going to visit an elephant camp in Thailand. I'd heard so many terrible things about the way they treat the animals, but when I got to Mae Vang camp, all those fears melted away. The elephants were all extremely active and happy and none of them wore the back-benches. And then, the baby. This little girl ran right up to me, out of all the people there, and wouldn't leave me alone (not that I wanted her to!). Eventually, I sat down to play and she climbed right up on top of me and promptly fell asleep for an hour. Six weeks old, 250 pounds... definitely doesn't describe many girls I've slept with. But it's definitely the most memorable one.
