It was a moment so serendipitous that it seemed out of fiction – Jumanji perhaps. I was busy procrastinating this morning when I noticed that “Banana Spiders” was trending #1 on yahoo. I thought “hmm – I’m hungry, I’d like a banana”.
My wife wakes and leaves early and we have gotten into the habit of sharing a banana in the morning. She cuts, or breaks off half and leaves the other half for me. I know – it’s a little odd – but true.
I wandered into the kitchen to help myself to said banana half, and that’s when I noticed the odd cocoons on my banana!
Riding down Riverside with Manfrank, Marsky and Sanderson on a lovely sunny day.
While locking up our bikes near the Pier i Cafe on 72nd (I just learned this place had a name). Some tourists were exclaiming about the stench of the Hudson, or so I thought.
As a I peered over the boardwalk’s steel railing that divides the human and the marine I noticed that what stunk was not only the Hudson, but an enormous fish. Some claimed it was a barracuda, though the short nose and seemingly bottom feeding mouth made me think otherwise.
