Actually, this will not be an ode. Honestly, I’m not entirely sure what an ode is. I know it means something, much like I know that soliloquy, verisimilitude, and aphorism mean something, I’m just not that sure what that is. I’m more of an alliteration, assonance, simile, and metaphor guy, myself.
Instead, this is a request for more black squirrel sightings. Flashback to the map we ran in the October, 2009 issue of NEBRASKAland. I’m interested in hearing all sightings, even if the areas have already been covered on this map. Also, it would not be a tragedy if you began giving me sightings outside of the state.
I want to make a bigger map, one that viewers might see as a hyperbole, but I would of course know it to be true.
Send em’ in.
