one of those brainy Ph.D. types told me
she keeps her mind fresh and snappy during
her work day by periodicallylooking at cute
baby animal pictures,
alpacas and bunnies, coyotes and piglets,
hamsters and giraffes.
she read it in a magazine, probably
Science or Nature, knowing her reading
I would have missed it and my
mind would have continued its
downward drift all day.
now I can look forward to shots
of brain energy via baby animal
i often laugh out loud.
