But, alas, Lucy's Plan A is not working out. You see Alan Varcik, the zoo's General Curator has told Lucy they do not have
Not one to be easily
discouraged, Lucy in the Sky is moving to Plan B. She is now talking
with Alan Varcik about hiring Donna Stevens, owner of the zebra
"Spirit." Once a month Donna would love to come to the Santa
Barbara Zoo and educate the children about zebras bringing, of course,
her one-year-old friendly zebra, Spirit.
Why the Santa Barbara Zoo
could even have an official Zebra Day in Spirit's honor. Everybody could
wear their stripes on Zebra Day! With everyone's help, prayers and good
wishes the Zeeber could really be coming to town. Lucy hopes that Mr.
Alan Varcik will believe in this idea about children being allowed to
see the friendly zebra once a month at the Santa Barbara Zoo.
Otherwise, Lucy in the Sky will need to move on to Plan Z.
That would be taking her long list of customers and saying the
word "Yes" on her purple hot-line phone. Then they would all
visit Mr. Alan Varcik, and the Santa-Barbara Zoo, to help make the dream
of the children having the
opportunity to have a zebra experience become a reality.
Lucy in the Sky feels that the Santa Barbara Zoo needs to remove
the Z from Zoo and can call themselves the Santa Barbara "oo"
until they compromise and allow the children
to have a "zebra experience."
PS. We took Spirit the Zebra trick or treatin' for Halloween. He
got candy carrots and we got candy. Zipeee what fun!
