Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “sink/sank/sunk.” Use one, use two, or use ’em all and get bonus points. Enjoy!
I have no ideas.
The Titanic sank. They were over-confident according to the movie which is the most fun way to learn history regardless of whether 100% accurate or not. We can take historical fiction with a grain of salt.
Seems like there was some kid’s song that ended with something like sink, sank, sunk, but I think it was another word with those three tenses. Maybe it will come to me.
There have been orcas, aka killer whales, who have sunk three boats in European seas. At least one boat was a yacht. I looked this up and the whales seem to be acting in an organized way, led by a female who humans have nicknamed, Gladys. There is some speculation that the whales led by Gladys are seeking revenge for some wrong done to them, or they may see the boats as a threat. This particular pod of orcas is an endangered subpopulation. Whales, including orcas, are very intelligent. They are not normally that aggressive toward humans. I’m getting curiouser and curiouser.
I’m thinking these whales are thinking:
WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE! Bam!
I would not blame other animals or mother nature for thinking this way after all the damage humans have done. I don’t think anyone has been killed from the boat sinkings.
Here’s a video if you’re interested. Remember Jeff Corwin?
What was that song? I think it’s coming to me.
Think, thank, thunk? Thank doesn’t really fit there, but it’s a good word. Okay, I typed it in on youtube and discovered something about The Grinch song which ends like this:
The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote,
“Stink, stank, stunk”!
Maybe that’s how
the some orcas think about us humans.
The song really does paint an ugly picture of the Grinch. It’s a miracle that he got better. Wasn’t it music that helped him get better? He heard the Whos down in Whoville singing – with no presents at all.
Maybe we could sing to the whales. It might not help with the orcas. But you never know. We could sing all day long, but what we really need to do is stop harming animals and the planet.
Here are some peaceful encounters with Orcas:
Last week, Marley got the tube out of his ear flap that had been draining a hematoma for three weeks. It seems to be healing okay. To celebrate, we took him out to eat with us. He was a very good boy and had a few French fries. This vegan restaurant is so dog-friendly, they brought him a dog bowl with water.
