This summer I have a new job. Yes, in addition to my current job as provider of knowledge to impressionable young people, I have become Executive jelly fish herder. What do you have to do to get such a prestigious position? Well, you learn and you learn and you learn. No, I’m totally kidding. Herding jelly fish is actually more difficult than herding cats. Cats respond to some form of external stimuli. Jelly fish do not.
My mother refers to my job as “Shady Pines Activities Director.” For those of you who are fans of the magnificent 1980s sitcom Golden Girls, you will get the joke.
Anyway, I had to herd the jelly fish to Charles River. Then went in myself. On a kayak. Joyously:
