Single green female seeks friendship with fellow turtle

12 08 2009

Those of you who’ve met me in person know that I live with a school of minnows and can peek out of my tank and see hundreds of fry butting heads (accidentally, due to the overpopulation), snails going at it (yes, like that), and shrimp doing, uh, shrimpy things next door.  (Skittering, maybe?  Yeah, skittering.)  But I really don’t get the impression that anyone  here quite understands me.  My human shares my love of technology and has been blogging himself, and the fish certainly understand my “water’s always bluer” mentality (known to some as claustrophobia), but there’s something uniquely turtle about me that keep us from really hitting it off.   So I’m working up the courage to venture into the world of virtual friendship.

I came across the blog of another turtle the other day and instantly felt a connection… it’s as if every word in his blog is a window into my soul, and pure poetry:

i like to
swim
around the Tank
and float on th
e loG

Okay, so it was prose in his blog, but anything is better e.e. cummingsified.  Everything this Turtle says just speaks to me.  (No, that wasn’t more e.e. cummingsification; he really goes by Turtle, though his given name is Tiny.)   If only I weren’t so shy and could actually speak back!
