I came down with laryngitis last week. This was the day our fifth grade class was going on a field trip to the zoo and I did not want to miss it, so I went to school in spite of having lost my voice. The highlight of the visit to the zoo was
the time we spent in the petting zoo. While I was petting a baby Shetland Pony, my teacher asked, "How are you feeling   today?"

I responded, "Oh, I'm feeling a little horse."
