The Scientific Account
A research team proceeded toward the apex of a natural geologic protuberance, the purpose of their expedition being the procurement of a sample of fluid hydride of oxygen in a large vessel, the exact size of which was unspecified. One member of the team precipitously descended, sustaining severe damage to the upper cranial portion of his anatomical structure; subsequently the second member of the team performed a self-rotational translation oriented in the same direction taken by the first team member.

All in a Day’s Work
Fresh out of high school, I found a job cleaning the elegant home of an older couple. Among other things, I had to dust their many imported carvings and petrified collectibles, as well as pick up after their pets. One day I was astonished to find two ivory fossils lying on the floor beside the bookcase. I quickly picked them up, dusted them, and returned them to the shelf. I was shocked when the same thing happened the following week. Again, I picked up the ivory fossils and returned them to the shelf. Shortly after, my employer came into the family room, her faithful dog behind her. Looking around, she eyed thew bookcase. “Fluffy,” she asked the dog, “how in the world do you keep getting your bones up there?”
Faction: I read recipes the same way I read science fiction: I get to the end and I think, “Well, that’s not going to happen.”
A Living Travelogue
Some people try to turn back their personal “odometers.” Not me. I want people to know why I look like this: I’ve traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren’t paved.
