BroJoe sent two more insect photos last week. This first one arrived about the same time that I received a Groupon offer for Pole Dancing classes. My friend Beanie (another Groupon recipient) and I have exchanged e-mails discussing whether our flabby arms would be able to pull our weighted bottoms up a pole. Words like “hoists” and “pulleys” come to mind. We’ve come to the conclusion that even if they added a Senior discount, we’d still be throwing money away. We prefer to think of ourselves as not so much bottom-heavy as “firmly grounded.”
Nevertheless, the phrase “run it up the flagpole and see who salutes“ does send me into a fit of giggles.
Perhaps it was the Groupon offer that made me think of Pole Dancing when I saw BroJoe’s latest pictures.
Even after googling dragonflies, I can’t offer much in the way of helpful facts. There were discussions about whether or not male dragonflies are called damselflies and about how fast they can fly. Some said 35 mph with a cruising speed of about 10 mph, but one source said a dragonfly had been clocked at 60 mph. That one must have had pole position.
They eat mosquitoes and that’s good enough to make them all gold in my book. Come on over to my house, Dragonflies.
The meals are on me.
