Is it a rat? An opossum? A little of both. It is a rat-like marsupial that lives in southeast Asia and Australia.

How did they come up with a word for it? Perhaps having a little bafflegab – unclear, wordy jargon that sounds like gobbledygook.

Cute or creepy? Not sure I’d want one as a pet.

WWW: Nuptials

Nuptials – wedding, marriage, union

I’m supposed to attend nuptials this weekend.

Just after Valentine’s Day . . . I’ll stop typing now.
