This was going to be about how I'm (finally) on a taper for my training. But instead, enjoy this video of the tapir.

True story: I have an insanely cool old relative with a bunch of tapirs (and Watusi cattle and water buffalo and camels and... you get the idea). I took this photo of a few of the tapirs last time I visited.

What are they like in person? Do they interact with people? What do they smell like?

I am very excited about this.

They seemed like pretty curious little buggers. They definitely interact with my cousin, but then, he's an insane animal whisperer. I can't say I remember what they smell like.

I just dug this photo out of Dropbox... it's one I think my sister took on her phone. I was shooting with my DSLR too, so you've motivated me to go look on my other computer to find that photo folder :D I'll post some more.

      the leaders all have signals. they signal when they want someone to come over and interrupt a conversation they rather not be having with someone, but they have to look like they are nice and loving people.

      how do you know this? do you know the signals?

      'Scuse me,  y'all, but that's "ProphetESS," as detailed by her daughter in her message this week.  ProphetESS.  

       

      Wait, she ACTUALLY said that? 

      Because for YEARS our family and friends insisted that the whole "prophet" thing was something made up by outsiders to make them look like a cult, and that even if some people thought she was a prophet, it certainly was not the majority of the congregation (don't look at or listen to the testimonies that say "prophet" on a loop... 🙄).

      I visited there a couple times and there didn't seem to be a signal. The standing ovations felt unnatural to me, but it seemed natural to them. I think they've been conditioned to get amped up at certain points. The intonation of her voice when she said she was moving in there made me expect that they were going to clap.

      That's true - I've never visited during a normal service, but my husband has, and he did say it was creepy how they all clap at the exact same time (even when it doesn't feel like a normal time to clap) and how they all raise their hands the EXACT same way... like there was some RF orientation they all went to so they'd know the "correct" times to clap, cheer, and praise.
