Fly Revival 101

| | Comments (2)

Darlings, I'll tell you exactly how the fly revival works, but you need to pay very close attention because it's a highly complex, scientific process:

It's MAGIC, of course!

Okay... I'll admit: I have no clue how the fly regains consciousness after apparently drowning.

My guess is that we, having been blessed with a healthy dose of typical youthful impatience, didn't hold it under the water long enough for it to really drown, and so when it was put in the salt immediately after "drowning", the dehydration process caused by the salt happened quickly enough to bring the fly back from its unconscious state almost instantly, therefore causing witnesses to gasp out loud and be highly impressed.

Makes sense? If not... well, it's just after 4 a.m. and I really have no business still being awake, let alone trying to explain anything to anybody!

I had a dream last night about seeing someone doing this on tv and then turning the the missus to explain 'that's what I was telling you Red had written on her blog.'

As far as I know, I haven't mentioned it to the missus in waking hours - I guess we have a fairly active dream life together too...

is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
