I dread having to tell the family. I mean it was all just an off-the-cuff remark and I thought she knew better than that. But I should have never shot my mouth off.
"Who's that bear there with the little cubs", she asked.
"Oh, that's Smokey the bear. Many don't realize he's a female. The first Smokey died."
"I want to get a picture of this."
"Oh she'd love for you to get a good one of her cubs.....HEY! That was a joke!! You don't ever.....never mind."
Well at least the last thing she'll remember from this life is getting to pat Smokey the Bear's cubs.
I blame the people who train these. They could see she was blond.
