In Which I Have A Non-Soggy Excuse


Really, I’d love to have something of greater import to write here. But in my readings this week I have learned things about the background of Cap’n Crunch, the man, that it’s taking me time to digest and I don’t know how long it’s going to be before I’m quite back on top of things.

I have never been on top of a thing, except for four of the times I’ve been on a mountain. One of those mountains was the highest point in Singapore, Bukit Timah Hill, which is nearly twelve feet above sea level. (Fun fact: the words ‘Bukit Timah’ are Malay for ‘tin hill’, but nobody seems to be able to agree whether it’s called Bukit Timah because there is or ever was a hill you got tin from anywhere near there, or whether the name’s coincidence.)

I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there. He/him.

    1. You don’t have to take your own oxygen. Personally I’ve always been fine using oxygen from the tap. I think the bottled stuff is just an attempt to make people feel like they’re above the common folk.

    1. Oh, goodness, bunches of stuff. The one that I find myself most unable to believe, though, is that he’s supposed to have been born in the 14th century. I just can not believe we’re supposed to accept his voyages as being from that long ago. … I suppose he might just be over six hundred years old. Either way it’s a weird thing to process.
