So, I'm co-dependent. Sue me if you want. I was born needing to be needed. To take care of someone, anyone—anything—besides myself.
That's why I'm sitting here inside the aviary at the Arizona Wildlife Park—staring at a duck nest. It isn't the nest that has my attention, though. It's the baby pink egg perched smack dab in the middle of the army-green Mallard eggs. There's got to be something special growing in that egg.
And the Park wants to get rid of it.
It burns my bridges just thinking about it, makes me want to lay down in this brook babbling beside me and take a good roll like one of my dogs, just to cool off.
