'Cause mine have. That's right yesterday while at the wildlife park I decided to let my little monkeys ride the camel. It's an above-board operation so I assumed all was well. I settled my two little ones along with another little friend of theirs on top of the towering animal. If you've ever ridden a camel you know that essentially there is just a bar that you hold onto, no seatbelts or anything. It began well. He stopped the camel so that we could take pictures and then walked it down the trail and back. As they were pulling up to the platform that allows people to board the blasted animal started bucking. Full out bucking. I could see poor little Johnny holding on to the front bar for dear life, his whole little body flying up in the air behind him. I ran, but I would have been too late. The man yanked the camel down and got it under control. I hustled my little ones off the camel ( who will be known as Satan from here on out). I snuggled a terrified Johnny and practiced my yoga breathing. Lesson learned. Camels are vicious evil animals and should be avoided at all costs.
