Another misnomer in our natural world: jellyfish aren’t actually fish, but plankton! I hear that there’s a support group for koala bears and jellyfish that is currently recruiting members.
I met this lacy friend at the Shedd aquarium in Chicago.
Rows of lavender that my little brother was sweet enough to pose in front of. The honey throughout the valley has a distinctive taste.
My family, in the distance, rocking sun hats.
Me answering the phone at work yesterday: “Ensemble, bonjour?”
Person on the other line: Hey Mikhala!
Me, assuming I’m speaking to Joannie, my co-worker: Oh hello kitten!
The person on the other line continues to talk and I realize with a degree of embarrassment that it’s actually Anne, the director general.
Me: Oh Anne, I’m sorry! I thought you were Joannie. That’s why I called you “kitten”.
Anne, unfazed: I don’t mind if you call me kitten. That’s the nickname I use with my daughters.
And this is one of the reasons why I’m ardently in love with my job. I call my boss “kitten” and she doesn’t even blink. Well I’m assuming she didn’t blink. It was a phone conversation after all.
