Bumps


After yesterday's fog had settled down a bit, 
I like to imagine this is what happened to it - that it became
lovely crystalline ornaments on flowers and grasses.

I was walking across the lawn at the IMA 100 Acres 
when I saw what looked like a dried brown leaf 
in the grass. I stopped to take a look because 
the leaf looked as though it had legs.
My suspicions aroused, I stopped to check 
and found the leaf to be this brown toad.
Poor guy, he was doing such a good job 
of being a leaf that I'd almost squashed him
into his next life.

Oooh, sparkly jewels and a nice warty toad. This is getting very Harry Potterish, Speedway.

Yeah ... The scar's been twinging. A male co-worker told me to say that I speak Parseltounge and to never, ever, tell anyone I "speak Snake -- fluently."

Is "parseltounge" the peculiar argot exclusive to UPS agents and delivery men>
