Of course, I left off the most important part of my "some musings" posts, and that is after rolling this idea around in my head (and remembering to breathe during the process), I present it as a normal, ordinary thought process. I also feel free to include "facts" that everyone knows such as:
"I saw a white stork in my pond the other day. I'm not sure if the blue heron has already turned or if this is another bird. I'm really hoping that I haven't missed the blue heron's cocoon stage as everyone knows it's important for your mutant creature to see you first when emerging from their metamorphosis stage."
And there you go. Feel free to add your ideas and experiences in the comments.
