Galapagos Tortoise

It’s me again. While I’ve been hiding from everything, I’ve also been scheming. It’ll take a long time to finally see what it adds up to, though.

If you’ll allow me to anthropomorphize the poor creature, its face is as messy as a toddler’s, but it also looks so old! Also, my assumption that anthropomorphizing the animal would only embarrass it is in itself a form of anthropomorphism! Amazing, amazing!

A day at the spa? I know people who would pay good money for a treatment like this… of course if it makes you look like this guy… well, maybe not…

This is one of my favorite pictures on the site. I just want to take a napkin and wipe his little chin.
