Context: Talking about her research trip to Puerto Rico next week (side note: absurdly jealous)
H: So we were talking about the wildlife on the island yesterday and my teacher was talking about "ferocious" centipedes and how one was once so big it had to be on a leash.

On an entirely separate but also very related note...meet my other sister!
You would think that being essentially the same person would make our relationship more natural, but alas, no. Syd was the hardest person to get along with when I was younger for exactly that reason. Oh the stories I could (and probably will) tell. At times we still have trouble getting along today, precisely because she is me in miniature, more-clever, better-than-me-at-sports form. But I love her!
Anyway, Syd started a blog! Check her out! www.properlymade.weebly.com
