Can You Swim, Eat And Dry Your Hair?

by Kimberly A. Cook                 (twitter@  WarriorTales)

One reason I went into the Army is I can’t swim for beans. Do a mean dog paddle or glide? Yes. Breast stroke? No.  So when I saw this clip from the “Nature” television show with sea otters not only eating and swimming, but a momma otter blowing her baby’s hair dry and swimming, so impressive.

I can barely dry my hair standing on dry land, let alone swimming. Might be an electrical issue with the whole power cord thing too. That’s why those warning labels are on hair dryers because you know some idiot tried it. Once.

Watch these otters in action courtesy of the robot “Spy Otter” who snuck up and got these papparazi shots of the sea otters.

Have a great, safe, weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Time For Sea Otter Chefs?

by Kimberly A. Cook                (Twitter@ WarriorTales)

I read somewhere the average family rotates the same ten recipes for meals. That seems about eight more than I use on a regular basis. To increase my skills I’ve been watching a Mediterranean Cooking course. This class is taught by a Chef Instructor so I am way out of my league. Thought it would mostly involve cutting vegetables.

When I saw these rescued sea otters at the Oregon Zoo showing how to whip up a seafood buffet, I felt much more at home. Think I may use their shellfish opening techniques on the stuck lid on the spaghetti sauce jar. Get me a big rock! Or as we called them in the Army, a BFR.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!
