So, funny story. I’m attending the American Association of Zookeepers conference and our hotel experienced a water outage. They had to turn off all the water to the entire hotel for the afternoon while fixing the issue. Okay, so if you’re staying at the hotel, maybe it’s not so funny. But then I realized this…
