I picked up a little hitchhiker on my ride to work today, probably somewhere in the Arb. Thing is, I didn’t even notice until I’d been at work about a half hour, when I felt something tickling my cheek. Swiping it away, I found this little critter, who then crawled perplexedly – but, as insects go, cutely – all over my hand and arm. I finally put the caterpillar outside, in front of my building, where an undergrad on her way to class gave me a very odd look. What, you’ve never seen a grownup on his knees in front of a flower bed at 8:30 in the morning?
