Whenever we played the “I’m going on a picnic” game, the first person to go always brought an apple. Who wouldn’t? An apple a day keeps the doctor away, don’t you know.


If I ever had an opportunity I would sometimes switch to aardvark, mostly because it starts with not just one A but two! Don’t aardvarks eat ants? That could come in handy at a picnic. Well, a night time picnic in Africa perhaps, because aardvarks apparently nocturnal and they are native to the continent of Africa. Who knew?
