Sometimes you find something a friend made and you are so amazed, because you knew they were really cool, but you hadn’t realized they were so cool that they were producing cool things.
Just yesterday I found out that a former RA of mine has the coolest blog ever called The Tragic Whale. She does paper cut outs of whales and their tragic stories. I am going to put one of my favorites here.
Margo the Cargo Whale… A Tragic Whale Story
It was a cheery day at sea when Margo the Whale realized her life was purposeless.
She’d have to come up with something to justify her life. Otherwise, she was afraid, she might wither away.
She tried becoming a bird catcher, but she felt too guilty imprisoning her friends.
The next obvious choice was a hair dresser, but whales have no hair to style and no hands to style with.
Things were getting rough. “Oh!” thought Margo. “I can sell cell phones! Maybe this is my true calling!”
Margo took a break from her search. What could she do with her life that was both satisfying and helpful to others? She frowned, deep in thought.
Then it came to her!
Margo would become… a Cargo Whale!
Trailing behind small ocean liners, Margo the cargo Whale could fill her life with meaning and purpose.
But the cargo began to block her breathe hole. And it became quite heavy.
Margo’s cargo crushed and suffocated her.
Also she made a shark coin purse, which is up there in coolest things ever.
Also, also she has a series called “fashion advice from mom“, which is funny, funny, funny.
