This... wasn't how she'd planned to spend her day, but spontaneity didn't hurt no one and Ino was in a great mood as she and Sparkle hit up the zoo, of all places. It was a hot, sunny day and the zoo was crowded.

But since it wasn’t yet school holidays and it was just a Tuesday, it wasn’t too bad, all things considered. (Ino was pretending that she hadn't noticed the number of children present on field trips.)

Ino peered at her map of the zoo grounds as they got through the front gates. "Where to first?" she asked. "You hungry? Guess I should’ve asked first."

She’d sent Silly home. It had seemed like a bad idea to bring a baby bird to a zoo.

[For Sparkle, yo! NFB.]

"I mean, I could eat," Sparkle admitted, pausing for a moment. "Like, we could just swing by a hamburger stand on our way around the park or something. Grab a hot dog. Something we can eat while we're pointing at the tigers and wondering why the island can't turn us into something like that from time to time, just to mix things up."

Sparkle almost always became a small yappy dog. Which was almost insulting, given he was such a cat person.

"Usually it's a corgi," Sparkle muttered, rolling his eyes and then starting off in the direction she'd indicated. "This one time, it was a chihuahua. But that was only when it changed Atton at the same time."

Because of course it had. Sigh.

"How about you?"

To Sparkle's eternal lament, really. Make him a cat, island! Make him something cool!

"Oh, come on," he laughed, shaking his head. "Anybody with more than, like, a month of experience with the island has something."

Okay, a bit more than that, but still. He wasn't buying it.

Step up and be the new puppy, since Zack wasn't up to it so much these days?

"... Oh my god that sounds adorable, though."

"I mean, I've seen pictures of baby pigs," Sparkle said, laughing and shrugging. "But you're talking, like, wild boars? Don't they have stripes and things?"

"Oh my god." Sparkle stared at the pictures for a few seconds, and then said it again. With more feeling. "Oh. My. God. Look at them! They're so precious!"

He paused, and then grinned at her.

"You think maybe they have some here?"

"We did have nefarious plans to pet whatever we can," Sparkle agreed brightly. "But for one of those, hell, I'd be tempted to try to smuggle one home with me."

It was tradition.

Sparkle considered that, too.

"Nah," he sighed. "Atton would kill me if I actually came home with a pet. The fish was okay, but something that can actually, like, process thought might be pushing it."

Cats had already been vetoed. It was basically like Sparkle Hell.

"Ugh, being responsible sucks. Let's eat ice cream instead of burgers until everything hurts."

"Okay, that logic, I will allow," Sparkle decided, shrugging and stepping into line behind her. "Wouldn't do to have a crash at the zoo, would it?"

Especially not before they could make faces at the monkeys.

"And, I mean, such hardship," Sparkle laughed, "having to come back to the zoo."

However would they survive?

"I, for one, and willing to take one for the team and come back to explore the zoo at every possible opportunity," Sparkle mused. "At least until we can be reasonably certain that we've seen it all.

"Education is indeed a lifetime process." Sparkle gave a sage nod. "And we're nothing if not dedicated."

"Some terrible part of me wants to suggestively eat a corn dog and see how long it is before I get kicked out of the park," Sparkle said, smirking. "Which means I should probably just get, like, a cheeseburger or something. Extra pickles."

"Deal," Sparkle replied with a bright grin. "Anyway, I'm not gonna get chased off until we've had ice cream and seen little wild pigs."

They had a course set, here! A plan!

"Yeah, some kind of juice, maybe," Sparkle mused. "American soda is still super crappy."

It was flat. Even with carbonation in it, it was freaking flat.

"Apple juice it is, then," Sparkle decided. "I've got a soft spot for sugar that pretends to be healthy for you."

"It might have, like, looked at an apple once or twice," Sparkle laughed, shaking his head, "but I promise, it so isn't a health drink."

"It's okay," Sparkle laughed, "I won't try too hard anyway. I still pass off Pop Tarts as a breakfast food, I mean."

It drove Dr. Lecter nuts.

"Well, I mean, not when you've got other options," Sparkle drawled. "You know, like Cookie Crisp and Captain Crunch..."

Breakfast of champions.

"You are my breakfast hero," Sparkle gasped.

Somewhere, Hannibal was facepalming and didn't know why.

"Only the coffee kind," Sparkle decided after a moment's thought. "Unless you don't like coffee. Then I'll steep you tea instead."

"Is there such a thing as a hot chocolate perk?"

Sparkle asked the big questions here.

"... Something like that probably exists out there," Sparkle decided. "And if it doesn't, we should patent that."

"I mean, hot chocolate should be reason enough on its own, right?"

At least, Sparkle thought so.

"I was gonna suggest we just tell people to serve it iced," Sparkle noted, "but I'm pretty sure once you start heading in that direction, you just get chocolate milk."
