Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
Elspeth - Every day is indeed better with penguins. Unless you mean the Pittsburgh Penguins, that is (can you tell I'm a Flyers fan?). Thanks for sharing the great video!
Margot; I admit that series has me torn. I've been a Flyers fan for decades. This will date me, but I started rooting for them back when they were in the finals for the first time and no one was giving them a chance. I decided to root for the underdog. Plus, Bernie Parent was incredible. But Pittsburgh has Sidney Crosby...our scorer of the Golden Goal.... But hey, that game on Wednesday was incredible.Remember, I'm a Canadian talking about hockey during the playoffs. This reply could have been way longer.
Elspeth - No worries! I knew you'd appreciate that reference. And yes, Bernie Parent was a player of all players. I've loved the Flyers for a long time, too... Oh, and yes, Wednesday's game was an amazing game. Jakub Voráček is probably still hung over from the post-game celebrations ;-).
Well, that was a few moments of delightful.
Wasn't it though? I want one for a pet. I can visualize myself walking down the street with it. We'd be pals. We'd stop for ice cream. Yeah, it'd be a day.
Can you imagine the reaction of your neighbors when they saw you walking down the street with a leash-trained penguin :)Happy Weekend!
I know it isn't possible but I 'almost' thought that penguin was going to take off near the end of that video :-)
Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
