We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little.
It's so great to not be a sheep louse, isn't it? I mean, in general, lice are tough little buggers: (from wikipedia): Adult and nymphal lice can survive on sheep-shearers' moccasins for up to 10 days, but microwaving the footwear for five minutes in a plastic bag will kill the lice.
So I guess there's something to be said for them, but really, what must it be like, just chewing and sucking all day as your only purpose?
I'm happy to be a writer today, plain and simple.
How are you guys doing today?
