Malcoha pondering the important questions in life:
How did I get here?
How do I work this?
Where is that large automobile?

Taveta golden weaver inspecting the landing gear.
Plantain Eater that believes that there was, in fact, something Bonnie Tyler could do. Yes, emotions can cloud one’s heart, but clouds can block eclipses as well.
Perhaps a more nuanced view of life’s emotions were warranted.
The internet tells me that a “lappet” is “a small decorative flap or fold”.
Henceforth, it’s not that I stay up too late. It’s that I am developing lappety eyes … you know, for decoration.
