Re number 10 -- My ex-husband was once at Fleishhacker Zoo (I just googled Zoo San Francisco to get the right spelling for this and learned that it is now the San Francisco Zoo and USED to be the Fleishhacker! Not fair!) and saw a man carrying a boy about three years old on his shoulders while talking to a very sexy woman whom Dick thought he didn't seem to know. The child kept saying "Daddy! Daddy!" and the guy kept shushing him and finally the poor child peed all down the man's back.
