I did finally get outside this afternoon. I learned that 52oF is really not all that cold for throwing, especially with a container of hot water from the kitchen. I threw a colony of penguins.

S thought they might benefit from eyeballs.

E informed me that only Emperor penguins are this tall. "Most penguins are only about"--he held his index finger and thumb about two centimeters apart--"this tall. You know that, right?" He knows such things because he had a unit on penguins in Kindergarten and first grade, and probably second grade too. Penguins were very popular at his elementary school; apparently aspect ratios were not as interesting. (For the record, he knows real Emperor penguins are more than 4 inches tall.)
