Today in biology class, my daughter dissected a squid.

That may not seem like such an accomplishment, but that's not the cool part. The cool part was the brainwave she had when she pulled out the claw. She thought it looked like a quill pen so she cut a split in the tip, dipped it into the squid ink in the ink sack and wrote her name with it.

I don't have pictures of the event. I wish I did. You'll just have to trust me as I trusted her when she told me about it.

She says this is kind of what it looked like:

But without the convenient labels, of course.

I just thought it was so cool I had to share.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

K, fighting off the tears here...keep it together Calvin. What an awesome kid. She is definately 'Cave of Cool' material with her skills in disecting the dreaded squid (a visible member of the Cephalopod Alliance). It's just a beautiful thing to read about.

That's way better than what I did with the shark I had to dissect.
Shark tastes great cooked over a bunsen burner, by the by.

I am biased, of course, but I believe that any organization that she deigns to join would be lucky to have her. She has all the makings of a great pulp adventure hero and longs to go out into the world and do good.

I am as proud of her as any father of a fledgling superhero would be.
