A real hippo playing the Hippopotamus Game at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL

The name comes from a game we like to play, called the Hippopotamus Game. It goes something like this:
  • take a nap.
  • wake up and yawn. the bigger the better.
  • have a snack. watermelons are good.
  • take another nap.
  • wake up and yawn.
  • swim.
  • another snack. pumpkins are fun snacks...
  • nap in the pool.
  • walk around a bit, and then have another snack.
  • repeat.
