24. Yes, We Are in Fact Camels
Ever ridden a camel? It’s a good time, a bit bumpy though, but kind of fascinating to be on such a large creature. If you’ve ever met a camel, it is also pretty obvious that humans are most certainly not the hump-backed creatures. We just aren’t acclimated to the desert in the same way.
I find it strange this child wasn’t ever corrected for the belief they held for years on end; maybe those who knew the truth were having the reverse effect he (or she) did, assuming they were saying “mammal” instead of camel. Or just thinking it cute they got the word wrong.
