When I saw the giraffe I was on the platform of bus as a conductor. I used to drink quite a lot in them days, saw the giraffe, rubbed my eyes, looked again an it had gone. I didn'teven know the place existed. Swore to give up the booze there and then, until my driver told me that it was Chester Zoo's quarantine building. It did put the wind up my kilt though.
