During my visit with friend gckaf this past weekend, I also got to explore gckaf’s yard. First order of business: Finding and nomming the big beautiful dandies! After my dandie snack, we investigated a tree that is growing funny purple pinecones. I was so focused on investigating that I fell right off–into gckaf’s hand, thankfully!
Next, I showed off my running skills by running down an entire half of a tennis court. I tried to nom some mystery grass at the side of the tennis court, but Mommy said no. So I sat on a hammer with my dandies instead!
When I read the Life of Pi, the part that gave me sleepless nights is when Pi got stuck in a floating green island with fresh water and trees, and which he thought he could live in forever. Until he found that the island is carnivorous and had digested a human before. Proof? A human, undigested tooth inside a balled up leaf in the tree.
I park my car every morning under this tree and look, balled up leaves. I shudder to think what it holds inside.
