If you ask Fuzz what she wants to be when she grows up, she’ll give you the same answer “A Shamu trainer”. She’s had this career picked out since she was 3 and hasn’t waivered. Sometimes she says “Shamu Trainer/Author” and one time she said “Shamu Trainer/Rock Star” but any other avocation is a side job to working with killer whales.
So today, was pretty much the best day of Fuzz’s life. Her dad took her to Sea World where after three years of wishing, she was finally picked to be the kid that helps the trainers do tricks with Shamu. Yes, that kid! The one who stands in front of 3,000 people, chats with the trainer, learns about killer whales and feeds Shamu a fish or two.
I’ll post pictures when I get them. They’re on their way home, but are planning a celebratory meal at McDonald’s.
