Stop digging through files, punching numbers into your calculator, and put that Go2Meeting on mute. You'll want to watch this video from the Dallas Zoo of an adorable baby giraffe. First-time giraffe mommy Chrystal gave birth to a 6-foot-tall baby over the weekend and the zoo released a video of a few affectionate first moments. It's not named yet, so maybe you should send the zoo a few suggestions. And if you're asking yourself when you can see said baby in person, the zoo is hoping for as early as next week.
You may now return to whatever important business task you were performing before this charming interruption.
