One of my favorite Google image searches is: baby hippo.
But then today, for no reason at all, I wondered what kind of magical images a “baby hipster” search would bring me. And, let me tell you, that is a whole other rabbit hole in which to dive. But here, in this forum alone, the two worlds collide in what I’ve cleverly titled:
HIPSTER BABY or BABY HIPPO
My obsession with the infant hippo stems from the fact that, skinned of his fawn coat, I really believe Duncan would resemble a baby hippo. They are both plump and sit awkwardly on their haunches, like they can’t really relax. Also, because pug eyes, much like hippo eyes are situated on the sides of the head instead of facing forward, they give the best side eye. As if always letting you know, “I don’t necessarily trust your next move.”
The truth is, I’ll never have myself a baby hippo. On the other hand, there’s a really good chance that when Meredith isn’t looking I’ll be dressing up our new little sprout as a hipster baby. The question is, who wins out? The hipster or the hippo?
And the winner goes to?
