Senior Son has become obsessed with micro-organisms, which has never bothered me until NOW!!!! (Detect any anger? What? Moi?)
He was totally absorbed in reading the book, “Unseen Companions – Big Views of Tiny Creatures,” by David and Madeleine Spears tonight and I thought, as he literally had his nose glued to the book, that he was solving the world’s problems.
I thought wrong. Big time.
He arrived by my side, sly smile on his (not so today) sweet face, microbiology book in hand and I swear, feet poised to charge away from me as quickly as possible.
He announced with a straight face that the organisms in his book remind him of real life objects around the house. There are only a few, but to understand my pain (not ANGER!!) read until the end.

Exhibit B – Looks like combs (apparently all these creatures are found in our ponds!)
Exhibit C – A plug:
Exhibit D – A shoe:
And … wait for it…
