As a tour guide at a local zoological park, I have the awesome opportunity to introduce guests to animals they never even imagined getting close to. On one of our tours, I instruct groups on how to touch a shark. No, no, no. Not a big scary one. It's a tiny white spotted bamboo shark. But that doesn't stop the imagination of some from wandering.
Before I invite everyone up for their photo op, I go over the instructions and demonstrate. "You're going to use two finger and touch the shark right along the back. After that, come and get a paper towel and some hand sanitizer."
Pretty simple, right? I asked the group if they had any questions and one of the younger guests raised his hand.
"Should we use our two least favorite fingers?" he asked.
