This was my plan for Monday: Read up on a subject I haven’t covered in a while.
This is what actually happened:
I was starting on my stack of reading when I saw a post from the local blog DCist reporting that the zoo’s Sumatran tiger cubs were going on display for the first time that morning. I did some quick calculations, realized I had time to get there, and hit the road with notebook and camera. I wrote about the cuteness for The Last Word on Nothing.
I mean, what’s the point of being a freelancer if you can’t occasionally scrap your plans for the morning and go to the zoo?
