Has it really been five whole months since I last regaled you with tales of my personal lion king, Simba? Time certainly flies.
For some things, 2 months is a whole lifetime. Fruit flies only live for 14 days, and many species of mayflies live just 24 hours. For them, 2 months would be an eternity, but for most of us, 2 months is a blink of an eye. Although the last 2 months went by so fast, […]
