My friend posted a picture on Facebook yesterday. It was a map of the Americas turned sideways and it looked like a duck. So I commented that since I first saw a map of Australia in third grade, I’ve thought it looked like a Scotty dog. I just assumed everyone thought that. Apparently not! So here I give you a map of Australia beside a Scotty dog and now you, too, will see it as I do.
I see the weirdest things in a day. I really do. One week I saw something outrageously unusual every single day: a wild turkey walking down the middle of the road whose head came up almost equal to mine as I drove slowly past, an Amish man attempting to get on horse bareback, and I thought,”I should record these things”. The problem is I don’t often have pictures. I’ve finally decided: Who cares if there are no pictures?!?! So today is the first day of my new series “What I saw Today”. And what I saw today was a sign outside a market offering “Fresh Rainforest Talapia”.
I had two thoughts: a) I wouldn’t think of looking for fish in a forest and b) is there really a rainforest close enough to get fish to PA and still call it “fresh”?
