A listener

I had a nice experience yesterday afternoon. Picking up Madge from a playdate, I was trying to be witty with the mom and mentioned Sea Monkeys as an example of disappointing toys and the power of advertising to burn kids again and again even though they ought to know better blahblah.
She went into this thing about a show on NPR that she loves and how she heard something about the inventor of the Sea Monkeys. And then she said the only problem with the show are those damned limericks.
I'm kidding. I told her I write for WaitWait and she was duly enthused about it.
