Day 111: Adopted An Emperor Penguin Chick
One of the first movies my wife and I saw together in the theater was Happy Feet. We saw it in an IMAX dome and almost had to leave because my wife became nauseous and on the brink of vomiting. Luckily, she bucked up and we were able to sit through the entire movie. Even though it was an animated film, the baby emperor penguins immediately became my favorite animal. I know they can't sing and dance in real life, but I have made it one of my life goals to see these penguin chicks in person hopefully in their natural environment. Sadly, I may not have the opportunity to do that because, due to global warming, emperor penguins may soon find themselves on the endangered species list. I want to do my part to ensure that these cute little guys are taken care of, so for today's random act of kindness, I adopted an emperor penguin chick through the World Wildlife Foundation. While I wish one could be delivered to my house (I would build an igloo in my living room if need be), I am perfectly fine doing my part to help them maintain their cuteness in the wild.
