a great mystery, one out of many

Peripheral vision works wonders. Like last Thursday when I saw Colleen (my boss!) approach me at the lab computer. It looks like she is about to ask something, and now I get two extra seconds to think of something goofy to greet her with.

She goes first. “I have a question for you. Work-critical.”

“Which animal cracker is this?”

Colleen thought it was a squirrel, or a monkey. Maybe, I said. They both have big tails and chubby cheeks. But the face on the cracker looked like it had a big growl (and I swear I can imagine some whiskers around that nose), so my vote was for a big cat.

Perhaps the sticker on the animal cracker jar can provide a better clue.
