my friend told me that birds just take one
continuous breath for their whole life,
one continuous inhale, and they breathe
all the time. they never stop.
i think that's pretty cool.
but then i was thinking about it and maybe
that's why they can't swim, because
they're always inhaling, and it
would kind of suck to inhale a bunch
of water. so maybe being a
bird wouldn't be that cool.
but maybe my friend was just making
it up or she had her facts wrong and actually
birds breathe like we do, in and out
in and out
in and out.
and we can swim but we can't fly because
we're too busy exhaling to flap our wings.
do we have wings?
i think we're pretty cool because our
lungs work even though we
don't keep breathing all the time. we're
a little messed up and we hold it
in to see what life's like underwater. i
guess i just think lungs are kinda
nice to have.
