At some point in time, when we were full of innocence and wonder, we all fantasized about being animals. I did it when I was a child. Somewhere around age 4, I developed a major thing for unicorns. So, through preschool, kindergarten and part of first grade I spent large portions of my free time with stickers and jewels stuck across my forehead and along the length of my arms, galloping around, flapping my arms (because I was a flying unicorn), neighing and balancing dolls and barbies on my back while crawling on all fours.. ...

When a car comes up behind it, the driver pulls to the shoulder of the road to let the faster car go around. The driver does not pull over and stop; the car just keeps going at its slow but steady pace down the shoulder of the highway...

He said ... She Said (08/02/07)
