Inside a blogger's mind
Since most of my city is under construction, I see big yellow Caterpillar equipment everywhere I go. And since I sometimes come and go in the middle of the night, I get to see these majestic beasts at rest. Lately, maybe due to extreme mental fatigue, I've been imagining that backhoes, front-loaders, and cranes are modern day dinosaurs.
Take a look at what I'm talking about.
With its long reach, this crane is clearly the big apatosaurus. The apatosaurus was previously known as the brontosaurus. I don't think construction cranes ever went by another name.
Here's an adorable stegosaurus and a decidedly less-adorable front-loader. Both are slow moving but somehow likable to me.
Do you think it would make a good kids book or maybe movie -- trucks that become dinosaurs at night? The marketing possibilities are endless.
