I spent the first half of the day feeling vaguely anxious.
I was forgetting something -- but what?
Even at the manatee park, where I leaned over the fence, and watched the thick bodies of the sea cows surface and submerge, their tough hides scarred with propeller grooves, their heavily-breathing noses peeking out of the water making the whole place sound like a call center for dirty phone callers, I couldn't keep trying to remember what I wasn't doing.
It wasn't until I got home, a small manatee finger puppet in hand, that I realized what it was.
I needed to blog.
