Perezosa

September 4, 2007

Today I feel like this:

Sloth

Who am I kidding? I feel like that on most days.

I remember seeing a sloth or two in Caracas many moons ago. There was one in a park, trying to climb a statue, most likely of Simón Bolivar. It was weird seeing one in the middle of the city. You wonder how a sloth, as slow as they are, made it past highways and busy city streets. Just an FYI but the Spanish word for sloth is perezoso which literally translates into: lazy.

Next lifetime, I’m hoping I come back as a sloth so I can just lounge in trees and nibble on fruit all day long. Sounds ideal.

[There’s a whole website dedicated to pictures of sloths.]
