Ma Finch took the Finchbro and his whole family to the Ripley’s Aquarium last week. It was a roaring success, and Finchlet 1.0 in particular was simply mesmerized by all the bright and darting fish, and the tunnel you could stand in and watch the fish swim over and around you. He could have stayed there all night, quite happily. After careful examination of a large, slow-moving shark the Finchlet turned to Ma Finch and said confidently, for her edification and that of anyone within earshot: “Sharks have anuses.”

This has been A Word From Finchlet.
