The Gorilla Foundation
For about two months now I've been volunteering with the Gorilla Foundation here in the Bay area. It's the home of Koko the female gorilla who can communicate in over 1000 signs of American Sign Language. It's a very special project started by Dr. Penny Patterson while she was working on her doctorate at Stanford University. Anyway, they recently had a bbq for all volunteers as a thank you. One of the fun things we did was an egg toss competition. It came down myself, my wife, and one other pair. We were pretty far apart at that point and Sarah, my wife, threw the egg, and I had to run forward to catch it. The egg was heading straight for my chest area and as I caught it...well, you guessed it, all over me. Good times!
