Eons and eons ago, Offspring the Second had a book of poetry about insects: Insectlopedia. It was a favorite.
----- I am the dragon, The demon of skies. Behold my bold Enormous eyes. I sweep I swoop I terrorize. For lunch I munch On flies and bees. Mosquitoes with My feet I seize. I am the dragon: Down on your knees!
Douglas Florian, Insectlopedia
NinjaHead resides with a muffin-baking woman known herein as Herself. Herself has a Beloved Husband, with whom she shares three nearly-grown Offspring. When she is not writing Things, Herself nurtures a visceral fondness for small furry creatures. The household menagerie, which has varied in size and composition over the years, presently contains a minuscule middle aged chihuahua, a most mild-mannered senior chihuahua, and a very small hamster who, due to the prominence of his gonads, seems to need trousers for decency.
