Follow Friday – Zoo Birds

23 Mar

There comes a time in every parent’s life when you realize goddamn, I have got to stop swearing so fucking much. I posted as much on twitter and multiple people took my ambiguous tweet to mean I was going to stop swearing altogether. Fat fucking chance! I’ll probably swear even more online now that I’m trying not to swear in front of Isobel. It’s really hard, yo. Really fucking hard. This week, enjoy photos of some sort of bird I saw at the zoo. Have a great weekend!

    Hey what a neat idea – very cool of you to do this.

    I love your photos by the way and not swearing is really hard. It’s a pain in the fucking ass too, to be honest.
