Two posts in one day? My hubby has the kids today so i guess blogging is what I consider a break - keeps me writing and gives me a "time-out" all at once.
I don't know why but I have been obsessing about the platypus lately. My daughter was watching Bindi - The Jungle Girl and Bindi was talking about the platypus.
I realized I have not thought about the platypus in years - I am talking at least 20 years.
When was the last time you thought about the platypus?
So I did some research and realize I am in love with these little creatures. (which maybe short-lived since last year it was Seahorses :)
Did you know that a platypus is a "semi-aquatic, venomous, duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed, the only egg-laying , electroreception (whatever that means) mammal, that also has milk ducts to feed their young!!??
ok - what was the universe smokin' that day?
And venomous - seriously? Evidently "the male Platypus has a spur on the hind foot that delivers a venom capable of causing severe pain to humans."
They are also only found in Australia - crikey!
So these little creatures - with an obvious identity crisis brewing just under the surface - can actually hurt you.
What does this have to do with writing? Absolutely nothing.!
Just that the world is a crazy and beautiful place.
