The young girl I babysit told me about how a person can fit inside a whale heart, it’s that big. Then she crouched and made herself into the ball that would fit inside the heart. When I was in elementary school we went to visit the capitol building and were told that a Volkswagen Beetle could fit in the rotunda. Now, 20 years later, whenever I am home for a visit and drive past the capitol building I picture a yellow Volkswagen levitating high inside the dome. I’ve been told that at the hospital all kinds of things can be found in a person’s anus. Even gerbils. Outside my cat finds ways to slip under the house foundation— he emerges, squeaking newborn voles in his large mouth.
