In the Wild, We Rhinos have to watch our step. The occasional bump or bruise just goes with the territory, perfectly Natural. But there is a serious Limit.
In the Wild, there is no medical attention, no sick leave. In the Wild, We have to keep moving; if you sit in one place too long, some critter is likely to come take a bite.
We must do what We can, as long as We can, Naturally.
‘Where’ is always relative, right?
As far as any Rhino has ever figured it out, Where We are at a given moment is probably not going to mean much in two minutes; We will have moved on, probably mentally or physically or both. Definitely some Where else.
We at YIR wish all you Dads a fine day, full of Adventure and Nonsense.
What could top that?!
Ah, sunny Nepal, where the world’s largest honeybees (apis dorsata) live. As you might assume, they have the biggest stingers among bees. Whoa and Golly!
Cheery news, bees have no interest in Rhinos; our skin is thick and We pose no threat. They build hanging combs, way up. Live and let live, y’know?
The Bee Keeper outfit isn’t necessary, it just looks snappy.
Fanny Burney (b.1752) was one of the early women of letters in England. She wrote successful novels and plays, and kept an extensive journal of her comings and goings. She is remembered for her Epistolary Novels, meaning, the story was related through a series of letters, both to and from the heroine in question. Pretty neat.
She had a wicked sense of humor, with insights upon the Society in which she moved. Satire naturally appeals to Rhinos, worldwide. Right?
From time to time a Rhino will receive a Surprise. No preparation, no way of knowing just what it is? Just, here We go.
What is surprising about these Surprises is how often whatever it is, wherever it came from, or whoever sent it, that Surprise thing will come in Handy.
And often, in the Immediate Future. Amazing.
Rhinos sometimes feel plagued with Insights. We just have a knack for seeing a situation and then knowing all there is to know about correcting it.
The Rub comes in finding folks who want to benefit from our skills. RhinoLogic tells Us they should be delighted, or grateful, to be straightened out, but that is seldom the case.
So most Rhinos take the “Discretion” option, letting the cards fall as they will. It requires self-control. We’ll say no more…
