Is that what shark jammies look like?
What’s this eel’s deal anyway? What does he mean?
Is it a revelation? He’s just now realizing he’s an eel? He seems pretty calm about it. Perhaps this is the moment he comes to terms with his eelness. That’s kind of beautiful, really.
Or is he making an apology? Maybe he feels he led us astray that time he wowed us with his knowledge of planets and black holes and the general bigness of the cosmos and he needs to set the record straight. He’s just an eel. An eel with knowledge, but a humble eel.
A confession? An affirmation? What do you think?
Please notice how I didn’t make a really bad pun up there about Eel deGrasse Tyson. I didn’t.
FINALLY it’s the last week of school for my son. Four more days. That’s a long four days when it’s already, officially, summer (for real).
I’m spending those four days figuring out when and how I’ll get work done from now until September. As well as preparing bribes for myself so I’ll actually get business-related work done instead of just staying home every day and digging into my large stack of library books. I love my job, but I’m awfully fond of reading and lazing around and making excuses to go get ice cream, too.
But isn’t that pretty much what summer is about?
