Poem for Wednesday and Baby Sharks

A Shark is a Pet
By Kenn Nesbitt

A shark is a pet
that you don’t want to get.
There is nothing less fun than a shark.
He doesn’t have fur.
He won’t cuddle or purr,
and he never takes walks in the park.

Instead he just stares
and intensely prepares,
as he circles and waits in the dark,
to nibble your nose
and your fingers and toes,
for his bite is much worse than his bark.


Tuesday started overcast and quickly turned into another day of chilly rain. I never feel like I get anything done on days like this, even if I get a bunch of work and chores done before I go out just to breathe different air (in this case mostly in the car, since I had to pick something up). So I don't have a lot to report!

Apart from the new The Rise of Skywalker trailer, the only thing I've watched has been the first game of the Nationals-Astros World Series, a nail-biter which ended well! I somehow didn't realize that Soto isn't even old enough to drink. From the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, in honor of the Nats' Gerardo Parra, (baby) sharks!
