I trawled my blog this morning, positive that I had done a post about sperm…apparently not, it must just be one of those posts I wrote in my head.
Last year (?) a friend went off for a vasectomy so I decided to make him a little specimen jar of happy spermies. I recall asking on twitter whether sperm were known for their happiness or whether they were snarly competitive types.
I made a little label with his name and a ward number etc. on it for him (no photo for some reason) and thought it a rather grand and thoughtful gift.
As is my wont I then couldn’t stop thinking of sperm and whales and sperm whales. I Bookfaced this guy asking people whether I should scrap it or keep working on that damned tail.
and I did (insert at least six more weird sperm /whale creations here) and I made a little whale pincushion
and then I made another and so on and so on and so on. I so want to add a little joke here about all of this coming from one little sperm, but I'm guessing you guys are way ahead of me.
