ex machina

the eric update - day 628: on bananas, monkeys, extinction and the economics of peeling.

although the humble banana was, quite literally, odin's first solid food his interest in the fruit has waxed and mostly waned over the months as he seemed interested in eating only protein, blueberries and cheerios ( pretty much in that order of preference ).

but now monkeys are cool and he knows monkeys eat bananas and so thanks to the powers of toddler logic, bananas are back on the menu.

it's amazing to think that by the time odin reaches adulthood some believe that bananas as we know them will no longer exist ( obviously, some disagree ).

well at least there's a bit more time for us to relax on a saturday afternoon and ponder the economics of peeling bananas. i'm a peel-from-the-stem kind of guy, but given his interest in all things simian we should probably teach him how to properly peel a banana just like monkeys ( and many other cultures ) do it.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
