\”So kids, do you think hippos sweat blood?!\”

That\’s the question posed to me the other day at lunch. By my milk carton. Ok, I\’ll grant you that\’s not the exact phrasing, but frankly it was close to that. Who am I to resist the (eventual) exploration of the topic?

As it turns out, they don\’t. It\’s an oily red secretion that in actuality is a sun block and skin moisturizer. As such, the question isn\’t totally out of left field. Still, part of me wonders if making kids ponder whether or not hippos sweat blood over lunch is really the best idea…
