Orca: There he goes, diving into the pool again.
Orco: What a show off! Evolving from a beach ball into a human.
Orca: Your brain's a beach ball if you believe that evolution nonsense. Everyone knows the Great White Whale created us by breathing dust into our inflatable forms.
Orco: Sure, but still, there he is, coming and going as he pleases. And all we do is float aimlessly in the water.
Orca: But it's a great life, isn't it?
Orco: I don't know. Sometimes I'd just like to swim across the pool to the other side, to be in the sun. Or sometimes, if the sun is hot, I'd like to swim into the shade. But we can't move!
Orca: There's more to life than just moving around.
Orco: Well, I wish he'd stop moving.
Orca: Basically, he's nothing more than a bacterial conglomerate. If they'd only put a little more chlorine in the water, he'd go back to being a beach ball.

Thank you. I'm still wondering how I'm going to write all my stories, catch up on all "my" blogs, work, and spend time with my family in the next weeks. Guess I'll just keep on improvising. ;-)

Welcome back! =) Basically, he's nothing more than a bacterial conglomerate. If they'd only put a little more chlorine in the water, he'd go back to being a beach ball. I think I'm going to have to find a way to work that into regular conversation, it's just too good to not utilize!

Hello, Indie. Hopefully you are rested and feeling at your best. Time away is a necessity, and I hope your internal batteries are recharged.

Ease back into your life. You don't want to get burned out too quickly!
