When you see this sign of splatter,
You all had better scatter.
The hippo they call Lu,
Flicks his tail to . . . .
Make everybody scream!
Lu is in the hippopotamus equivalent of an old people’s home. He will celebrate his 54th birthday this month and hippos generally only live to 30. He was at the park when it was taken over by Florida State Parks and given leave to stay. He even has his own Florida State citizenship!

“You probably won’t remember this . . . we stopped in a café in a tiny town and there were some . . ”
“Motorcycles outside. Aladdin. Population 15.”
“How did you know what I was going to say?”
“I just did.”
“How do you remember this stuff?”
“I just do.”
“That’s really spooky. It’s like you’re . . ”
“Inside your head.”
I didn’t tell himself I’d just been looking at this photograph. It seemed a shame to spoil the illusion.
The next day, “I’ll bet you don’t know what state Aladdin is in.”
“I’ll bet you don’t know where we were going.”
