Baby Rides a Donkey

Baby's sojourn in Greece will come to a close this Thursday, ending days of blue beaches, all-day hiking and lumbering rides on a donkey named "Kicky." Baby, whose legs stretch to the ground while aboard the donkey, gave him the name as a celebration of the number of kicks the donkey must receive to get moving at a decent pace. "The Germans on their four-wheelers, sporting black socks with sandals, are all moving faster than Kicky and me," he lamented. "We have to stop and eat grass every few feet."
Still, Baby will probably miss Kicky in the end. His fondness of animals knows no bounds, even when he has to kick their sides to move faster. "I just want them to excel in life. Is that so bad?"
