Me and baby giraffes....

If you think this is going to be a cute post about baby giraffes, go ahead and leave the site, because you’re going to be highly disappointed.  Hell, you might be disappointed after reading this.  Anyways…. like I was saying, me and baby giraffes have one thing in common.  We can go ahead and rule out the 5 foot drop from the V slide.  We can also rule out long legs.  What I’m talking about is the stagger they have for about five minutes after birth trying to figure out how to walk.  That mental picture is what I look...
