*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

Whale Spotting Record Book

While I was driving home from work tonight, listening to the news, a story caught my ear. They were reporting on the whale that swam some 40 miles up the Thames River in London. The one line that grabbed my attention was this: "This is the first whale ever spotted this many miles upstream on the Thames since 1913, when they started keeping records."

Errrh? I'd love to see an entry in that record book. Maybe it looked something like this:

"June 17, 1936. No whales.
"June 18, 1936. No whales.
"June 19, 1936. No whales...
"November 5, 1968. No whales.
"November 6, 1968. No whales...
"January 20, 2006. A whale."

Errrh?
