Betcha that wasn’t what you were expecting me to say! (If you actually were, you might have either heard me tell this story before or have incredible mental faculties… And by that I mean you saw the picture. 😋)
Earlier this year (which doesn’t narrow it down at all as that could be any of the other 11 months), my dad, Carrie, and I went kayaking at Weeki Wachee Springs in Northernish Florida. As we rounded a bend, we saw some sunglasses and “poled” over to investigate. (I may have just made the world’s worst pun ever, given the fact that you use paddles, not poles, to steer and propel kayaks. Also, you don’t pull a kayak over like you would a car. So, apologies all around but I’m keeping it there because I can. Also, can you believe how long this parenthetical statement is??)
We made this amazingly true-to-life sculpture of our President-elect using part of an onion we found lying around (I kid you not) and a leaf. Bonus points if you know the Latin name of the plant from whence the leaf came to us on a bonny breeze (OK, we picked it up off the ground, but I will still be impressed).
In light of today’s importance, I thought I’d share this now. 🙂
P.S. Yes, I know the cypress knee we used isn’t a stump. Why do you have to be so critical! We were just making a pun and having fun. (hehe, rhyme) (shoutout to anyone who got that Ultimate Spiderman reference).
