By Jupiter!

Two giant red spots made the news yesterday:

Slide1NASA’s spacecraft Juno captured the most prominent images yet of Jupiter’s famous red spot. Why the eruption causing Jupiter’s swirl has lasted for centuries is unknown.

Slide2Meanwhile, I captured the most prominent image yet of the not-so-famous red spot on my arm. The cause of this raging eruption–which by the grace of God, prescription drugs, and calamine lotion will soon end–is now known: Poison ivy!

My wife offered these words of awe when she saw the latest images of Jupiter: “How beautiful! I wish I could go there!”

My wife offered these words of awe when she saw the latest image of my arm: “How disgusting! Get away from me!”

What a wondrous universe we live in!

    Ouch. Hope your arm gets healed more quickly. Has anyone (else) ever proposed that Jupiter’s complex storms might actually be just a giant “Lava Lamp” – to entertain God ? I saw one in a co-worker’s office recently and realized that 40 years after I first laid eyes on one, they are still popular with young people. Hmmm.

    I don’t know Mitch, but I think your wife really missed the boat on this one. I mean, how could she not see the resemblance?

    Hi Mitch,

    Spot the spot, which is beautiful and which is not.

    Don’t lose your sense of humor.

    Thanks, Gary

    Your wife is right. Your rash does not have the artistic appeal of, say, a developing bruise. 🙂
