How caution has no time zone. How a parallel can go forever without running into any old school chums at Sainsbury’s. How a bird and a horse can try and speak the same language, and how “cacophony” is the most beautiful word in the English language. How no matter what it is it always comes out the other end brown. How if it walks like a skunk and talks like a skunk it won’t smell like the flowers in your mom’s ICBM-shaped vase.
