Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young — a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
Psalm 84:3 (context)
Do birds sweat or pant? I saw one today hopping around with its beak wide open, and I hypothesized that birds pant like dogs do.
[30 seconds later] Sure enough. Nothing like a quick Google search.
Which reminds me of the time Mom and I wondered how much water dogs could lap up with their tongues. We filled one of our 250-mL beakers with water, put it on the ground, and let Carmel drink from it. As she did, we counted the number of laps she took from the cup. Then we divided the amount she had drunk by the number of laps, and found that she drank several milliliters of water with one slurp. Science in action!
P.S.: I chose the Choco Taco for ice cream today. Also disappointing. For the rest of the summer, I swear off anything but Ben & Jerry’?s or Dove Bars.

I assume you took the choco taco before reading the description:
“Artificially flavored fudge rippled reduced fat vanilla ice cream, a taco shell cone, milk chocolate flavored coating and crunchy peanuts.”
Yuck! So now you’ve tried the fake ice cream like thing adults get because they think they’re fat and the fake ice cream thing kids get because it costs 50 cents less on the ice cream truck. Moral of the story: Accept no substitutes.
choco tacos always make me think about mortality. also, movie theater previews make me think about my own mortality.
Funny, nora’s comments often make me think about my own mortality.
i miss you!
