1) Why do we instinctively cover our mouths when frightened / astonished / scared? When I was watching Breaking Bad last week my hand went to my mouth in the first ten minutes and half an hour later it was still up there, making my lips sweat. Boyfriend’s theory is that it’s a primitive self-defense “shush myself so predators don’t hear me” move.
2) Is there such a thing as a fat bat? There are so many bugs this fall that I wonder if there are any bats sitting around with bloated bellies, unable to achieve flight.
3) I accidentally shut a frog in my door the other day. I can’t say for sure when this happened because I didn’t notice until a few days after the fact. Me being me, I had to investigate. It looks like he was trying to come inside the house, which made me yell at his corpse, “What were you thinking?!?! Now I have guilt!!”
