“I’ll be back later,” Dex tells him, slinging his bag over
his shoulder. No practice today, but Dex has an early class. Normally he doesn’t
mind morning classes – years of working and living in Maine enforced an early
to bed/early to rise mentality so fierce he can’t knock it even on off-season.
Not even for Christmas. But he’s making a bit of an exception today and
allowing himself to want to stay at
the Haus, in bed with his boyfriend. Because it’s Nursey. And for Nursey, he’ll
always make an exception.
“Being so excited to be at the zoo, I tapped on the window and instantly got a reaction [from the gorillas]. When I did this at the chimps’ exhibit I only got a slight glare and a sense that the chimps were somewhat disappointed in me.”
“Gorillas tend to be less social because they spend much of their time waiting for orders to be given by their captain.”
“The gibbon fought with the other gibbon for no reason… when the [monkeys] fought with the sibling and then the adult pulls them both to the side (where it wasn’t visible to us) and possibly spoke with them in saying how they need to stop fighting and how it is embarrassing.” (I think this student may have been projecting a bit.)
