So there is this pond that I frequent on occasion. I'll not give specifics so hopefully no one out there can stalk me, but anyway, a few weeks ago, I saw a pelican there. A pelican had never been there before so it, in all my silliness, made me really excited. It was love at first sight I guess. I loved that pelican. So I wanted to name it. I asked around for a cool name and one of my sisters suggested several names. The name I liked best: Peeta. Not only does Peeta the Pelican sound just awesome, but it's the name of a character from the book Hunger Games. I love that book and especially the character Peeta from that book. And since I love that pelican almost as much as I love Peeta, what a better name for that pelican. A few days later, another pelican showed up. It needed a name too. We had to stick with the Hunger Games theme so we named it Katniss, for the girl in Hunger Games (yeah, I know that's a weird name). Occasionally there is a third pelican and we call that one Haymitch (also from Hunger Games). Seeing those pelicans, for some bizarre reason, makes me really happy.
And it is the simple pleasures like that which make life all the more enjoyable. Go find yourself a Peeta the Pelican.
