Notebook

About a month ago I found a dead bumble bee and decided I would start collecting insects and pin them down like in a museum. All the world would marvel at my vast collection of insect. I looked online for pins and boards and the like and got excited about my new venture into the natural sciences. I would be the new Charlie Darwin making observations on my specimen and become more enlightened and well rounded as a person. I would be invited to gala dinners with high society and talk about science and theology and whiskey.

After a week of this fanciful speculation on my future as a member of the royal society I promptly lost interest. That was a life I would never lead..... the bumble bee is still in a tupperware in my kitchen.
