First of all, no, this post has nothing to do with the previous post. That was just a minor blip in the stream of consciousness, on we go.
Had the boys over last night, since daughter is still without electricity and they needed clean clothes and a bath. Let’s not go there, shall we? Anyway, they were spending the night, we’d had dinner, GS1 was playing is favorite game on the computer and GS2 and I had bowled on the Wii (he won) and we had pulled out the sleeper sofa, made it up and were flipping through things to watch.
Suddenly, he saw this show on Animal Planet. Oh. My. God. And then of course we had to watch some NatGeo WILD program about water off the coast of South Africa and great white SHARKS eating seals, right? And what’s off the coast of San Francisco? SEALS, right?
Oh. My. God. Now I’m not the squeamish sort and I’m fascinated by all marine life, including sharks, but wow. I may actually be swimming with these
fiends, uh, THINGS, in a few months! I’m just sayin’.
And seriously, this tiger fish?? That is truly the subject of nightmares. However, the host of the show, Jeremy Wade was quite interesting and it was great that what he really wanted to do was just catch these things and observe them if possible and not kill them. Of course, standing in a rather precarious dugout canoe with a little fishing line…he stands a pretty good chance of getting yanked into the water himself…
Uh, okay, it’s time to go watch Dancing With The Stars (who don’t swim with the fishes)!
