Scientific Bait

When I was 9, I told the press I was going to be a marine biologist when I grew up.

When I was 11, I caught a 22 inch bass with a hot dog and decided being a marine biologist was too dangerous. If a bass will eat a hot dog, a shark would definitely think a scientist was bait.

Everyone thought I was being paranoid (as usual).

I was right (as usual).

I won't even eat a hot dog.

Unless I am at a baseball game. And drunk.

And, man....eeeew. Poor dead research diver.

Okay, but the real question is: Why were you talking to the press when you were 9? Were you a child prodigy? Are you that kid from that Jodie Foster movie? 'Fess up!

I won a poetry contest and, because our town is really small and boring, I got interviewed by the local paper. Everyone thought it was so adorable that I wanted to be a biologist. Everyone told me that I would change my mind a billion times. They apparently didn't know how stubborn I am.

I used to tell everyone I wanted to be a writer. They found that hilarious.

This seems an appropriate time to reference what may be the greatest marine biological treatise of all time
