One bonus of having a Resident Offspring in university is the opportunity for vicarious learning. The linguistics course this semester sounds pretty intriguing, like a course I wouldn't mind taking if I could teleport myself back a few decades.
During last night's Skype session, the RO educated me about Nim Chimpsky - the chimp which was taught American sign language. We both agreed that it was a pretty fierce name.
cute chimp, awful song
