Walk for a Cure for Diabetes
We went to the zoo to meet my co-workers so we could all walk together for a fund raiser supporting a cure for diabetes. Coffee, fruit, green wrist bands, and tee-shirts where issued after we turned in our money. Several other booths lined the fence under canopy’s served donated food; all sugar free. This was paradise to me. We woke up most of the animals as we gathered while walking through the zoo’s entrance gates. We figured the animals were not used to several hundred people waking them up before breakfast was served. The lions were roaring for their breakfast, or at least we think that is what they wanted. Their deep roars echoed throughout the park as we walked away looking over our shoulders. They sounded as if they were right behind us. The weather started out very cool, but by 10:30 a.m.; it was warming up quickly. Piccadilly restaurant donated noodle salad mixed with chicken along with a cherry cobbler at the end of the walk. The food was served in cups with fruit and a sugar free drink. An announcer was describing a set of found on the ground Toyota car keys as we all finished our food. Someone was going to be very surprised when they got to their car. All of my things seemed to be in check. At least that is what I thought. I placed my phone and money on the dining room table when we got home. We did our usual Saturday running around. We went to breakfast the next day after taking the cat to the vet. While we sat at the table ordering our breakfast, I realized I lost my drivers license somewhere at the zoo. I could picture the announcer calling my name after we left. I looked up the phone number and called the zoo from the breakfast table. My license was never turned in. I ordered a new drivers license online for $25.
