There’s something exciting in the fridge

by on May.26, 2010, under Family and friends

Now, those are the words that a girl wants to hear when she gets home after a hard day at work…

What could it be?

A bar of chocolate? 🙂

A nice steak? 🙂 🙂

A bottle of champagne? 🙂 🙂 🙂

But I paused, and asked the question “Is it edible?”.  The reply “it could be” didn’t exactly fill me with confidence that we were talking about ‘exciting’ in my terms rather than Martin’s.

Just to explain my hesitation; as many of you know, Martin has lots of enthusiasm for anything connected with natural history.  Birdwatching, whales and dolphins are just the tip of the iceberg.  Lichens are a bit esoteric by anyone’s standards, but he’s approaching that apparently mind-bending subject with the same enthusiasm that I’m assured he approached fungi, mosses and liverworts while he was still at infant’s school.  Moth-trapping is one of his favourite activities though, and with our garden list now approaching 250 species there’s always a sense of anticipation whenever we open the trap in a morning.  On workdays that’s usually done after I’ve left for work…

With an ever-growing media library (images, video and now sound recordings), and a house filled with gadgets, nets and sample pots it could be just about anything waiting in the fridge…

And here it is;

An Elephant in the fridge

Do you think he’ll get the hint about champagne? 😉
