It’s getting close to Halloween, so I thought I’d scare up a column about stuff to wonder about. No, this isn’t something I found in a routing e-mail or on Facebook. I keep a notebook with me most of the time to jot down column ideas because my forgetter is often much more active than my rememberer, and lots of stuff I try to hang onto mentally winds up in the great black hole of my head, never to be recollected again. So when my mind gets to wondering (and wandering) about stuff, I hurry up and jot that down. Here’s a sampling.
For decades now, we’ve heard about the elusive critter known as “Big Foot.” He goes by other monstrous monikers like sasquatch, yeti, abominable snowman, skunk ape, and sometimes even ex-spouse. What I wonder is, would you call more than one Big Feet or Big Foots? And if they had a baby, would we call it a Little Big Foot? A Footling? Footette?
