Vacation from Science

I was taking a walk through the park when I was joined by the ghost of Charles Darwin.

Darwin said, “Good day to you, sir.”

I said, “Good to meet you too. Do you often come to the woods?”

Darwin said, “I used to. I’ve been dead for a long while so I don’t get out much.”

I said, “I don’t think it matters much since I don’t get out often either.”

Darwin said, “It’s funny, when I was alive, I felt there was never enough time. I remember telling my wife that time was my arch-nemesis. But now time is like a deflated tire. It exists, but of what use is it?”

I said, “Can you smell?”

Darwin said, “Yes, why do you ask?”

I said, “Can you smell the cherry blossoms? They smell like airborne ice cream cones.”

Darwin took a sniff and smiled. He said, “Oh my, what a heavenly aroma.”
