We’re still in the Atlantic going a slow but steady five knots. We’ve seen lots of animals. Okay I don’t want to make this sound like a kindergarten essay where they take all day to talk about all of the colors and shapes of the animals and the sparkles so let’s get down to business.
We heard the engines purring as we ate sweet but delicious pancakes. It was all exactly usual, Mom and Dad were talking about the sail speed and the wind and I don’t really know anything else. I wasn’t actually paying attention but it sounded important, but I just couldn’t bear letting my pancakes get out of my sight. I stayed focused on them until it was all gone, but by then they had finished talking. Oh well. I helped Gordon set up the fish lures for the day, hoping that we would catch one. We hadn’t had so much as a nibble for the past couple of days. Pretty much nothing happened for the rest of the day when a pod of dolphins showed up. Since we left Bermuda we have seen at least ten pods of dolphin. These were different though. They had gray backs and white bellies so they looked like small killer whales. After they left a pod of pilot whales showed up. I hadn’t seen more than 6 of them and there may have been twice as many in this pod.
That’s all that really happened today so I’ll sign off with a riddle. But before that I’ll answer the other riddle. The answer is silence. What drives men insane and has billions of animals living in it?
Answer in the comments!
Well, It depends on what kind of biological infestation of the brain and or “mind” one has. It could be physical or “fictitious” animals. In either case, both could cause and man – OR a woman to go insane. Tell your Dad I said hi.
Hey David! I love your writing, keep it up! I know the answer to your riddle but I don’t want to ruin it for everybody else (I have no clue) lol. You da man!
