Organic hydric soil bedtime story

The next bedtime story I make up to tell H will totally feature the twin characters of Mucky Peat Histosol and Peaty Muck Histosol, drippy young superheroes.  Thank you, Mitsch and Gosselink, authors of my wetlands text.

But no thank you, M&G, for leading me down the fanciful but wrong path of believing that billabongs and oxbows were the same thing.  I mean, you said they were, right there in chaper two!  Then you took it back later, in, uh, chapter seven or something.  I am so disappointed.  If you hadn’t given me new characters for stories, I would still be mad.

About sayingthings

K lives in the US with her man and kiddos, knits, cans, dehydrates, bakes bread, (but doesn't cook regular food, particularly), crochets, spins, gardens, studies for a degree that never seems to end, and um, works. Sometimes she wastes time online. Also -- and family, she's looking at you here -- sometimes she swears and says things you might not agree with. But she still loves you.
