The Life of Microscopic Creatures

Sometimes, I think about all the different cells, microscopic mites, and other things that live on or within the human body.  I wonder what life would be like, if I was such a creature.

Blood cells run around all day.  They collect oxygen and deliver that oxygen all over the body.

  • Hello, Blood Cell Fred.  What are you doing today?
  • Well, I am going to collect and deliver oxygen.  The same thing I did yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that, and the day before that, and……..

The immune system is responsible for defense.  White blood cells are solders and they are always ready for a fight.

  • Intruder Alert!  All available solders report to the sinus cavity ASAP.  Deploy mucus defenses and prepare for combat.

Microscope mites live on our bodies, including on our eyelashes.  When I lose an eyelash that would be a catastrophic event in their world.

  • This is Molly Mite, reporting for Mighty Might News.  An eyelash, known as Miniville, mysteriously disappeared.  The number of causalities is unknown at this time.  Also, the Department of Missing Mites is overwhelmed by mites trying to locate loved ones that lived in the region.  Further updates will be available during the 7:00 broadcast.

Blogging Makes You Smarter

I bought this t-shirt from Amazon, because I enjoy blogging and I agree with the message.  Blogging is a great way to develop new skills and it can even make you smarter.

  • Blogging increases creativity, since you are always on the look out for new material, stories, artwork, or photography to share with your followers.
  • Blogging improves your writing skills and each post must be edited for grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Blogging requires a certain amount of computer skills.
  • Blogging also results in the need to conduct research and increases knowledge on various topics.

There are a lot of benefits to blogging.  If you have others to add to my list, let me know in the comment section.

Apocalyptic Stories

I enjoy books and movies with apocalyptic themes.  The cause may vary from zombies, to alien invasion, to a plague, or even a nuclear war; however, the stories tend to share certain characteristics.

The characters are ordinary people accomplishing great things in order to survive.  They display courage and determination in the face of dire circumstances.  They overcome great odds and attempt to build a better world.

That’s why I love apocalyptic stories.

Hiding From Dismal Days

IMG_6831

The weather has been dismal for a few days now.

The sky is a dull grey color, which strangely resembles cigarette ashes.

There is daylight, but there is no sun to be seen.

The rain and the heat mixes to create an oppressive humidity in the air.

I look out the window, but my view is distorted by raindrops.

My mood is impacted by the dismal day.

My emotional state is gloomy.

I have weather induced doldrums.

I want to hibernate until the sun returns.

If anyone needs me, I will be hiding under the covers.
