Monday Musings

I got an email today from my local Subaru dealership. I wouldn’t ordinarily mention this sort of thing—they send at least a couple a week, after all—but this particular email stood out. Here’s how my iPhone truncated the subject line:

“Aaron, use these services to make love…”

What’s missing, it turns out, is “last.” Not “all night long” or “to the voluptuous vixen of your dreams” or “if you’re having trouble with the ladies on accounta you’re a creepy perv who no one would sleep with even of you were the last man on Earth.” (“Make Love Last” is the name of Subaru’s trademarked winter service event, so it makes sense, I guess.)

Either way, the dealership’s “experienced sales staff is eager to share its knowledge and enthusiasm with you.” That’s…thoughtful.

But that’s not the point of today’s blog post. No, that would be that Nikon just announced the winners of its 2018 Small World Photomicrography Competition.

So forget I said anything about Subaru and its purported lovemaking assistance, which, let’s get real here, should be easy to do when you’re looking at a flea magnified 20 times (shudder).
