Tomorrow (Tuesday) is a special enhanced enrichment day for the chimpanzees: Superhero Day! I love superheroes (I’m not necessarily proud of this, but I saw The Avengers nine times in the theater) and I was sad I wouldn’t be here for Superhero Day. I figured the best course of action was to dress up like Batgirl and run around with the chimpanzees for a little while. It was rainy today, so I thought we could all use a little unusual entertainment.
I donned a cape, mask, and the black bodysuit, then posed with the amazing Batman Erika Price had constructed in the student room. Then I went in to see the chimpanzees. Tatu signed BLACK GIMME first. When I told her I couldn’t give her any part of my costume, she signed NUT several times. I told her I’d ask if she could have some when I was done playing with Loulis. Loulis tickled my boot a lot and got a huge play face as we played some chase. I then went to the kitchen to fulfill my heroic task (before I left the room, Tatu was sure to remind me what I was doing by signing NUT some more) and brought some nuts to Tatu and Loulis. Tatu seemed satisfied. All in a day’s work! Now I must return to being mild-mannered Kate Bridal until the chimpanzees are in need of a hero again.
