As The Moon Rises
The full moon is out and about tonight. I'm not running from it, not burrowing in, not ducking out of sight. It can do what it wants. Nothin' I can do about it. I'm not feeling particularly crazed, so I figure I'll be okay. I've been snippy for a few days, though -- which is not to be confused with crazed. I would not be at all averse to tongue-lashing any crazies who dare to cross my path over the next day or two, so I'd say they're the ones who'd better look out.
Scientists say the moon is shrinking. Not that much; it's something like 100 meters in the last billion years. But what would happen if it were to shrink down to the size of a tennis ball? On what would future generations blame Moon Madness?!
Have a good Tuesday and I'll catch up with you tomorrow.
