Fact Or Factoid?
The following statements may have some semblance of truth. In fact, they may be facts or factoids. I hang out with garden gnomes, a beautiful fairy princess (the 'wee folks'), a monkey , a hedgehog and a happy spoon. The happy spoon, sadly, is very shy and refused to appear in the photograph. I thought it would have made a stirring picture. I went in search of the elusive 'Fartangi' creature on the planet 'Zardos 7' in the outer quadrant of sector 69; which is located in the far reaches of the 'Ford' galaxy. I once played goal in an ice hockey game without wearing a jockstrap. (He types in a high-pitched voice). I have never lost in an 'egg and spoon' race. I am hero-worshipped by a colony of penguins near the settlement of McMurdo Station in Antarctica. They think of me as some kind of 'Emperor'. When the plane I'm in takes off; the penguins look up, fall over and flap their flippers in a fun-filled, fantastically friendly, frantic frenzy.
Some or all of the preceding statements may be true. Fact or factoid? Here's two more facts or factoids to make you wonder why you read this far....I live in a town named 'Leek'. As part of a bet; I once spent an entire day dressed in a pink bunny costume. (Okay, I quite enjoyed the experience).
There you go. Thankfully, a very brief blog. I'm off now to sail the liquid nitrogen seas that are evidently on Triton, the largest moon of Neptune. Yes, I typed 'Neptune' and not that other planet you may have been thinking of.
