Since the baby Cobra joined us late last year, there has been a marked increase in the number of giraffes in our house. From where I am sitting, for example, I can see four giraffes – which I believe is officially a swarm – and like icebergs (the frozen water ones, not the lettuce ones) that is just a small fraction of the population that has now moved in with Mrs Cobras and me.
I believe that it is possible to work out if any given household has young children or babies simply by counting the giraffes. There is no doubt that they are as cute as big smiling bumble bees or baby unicorns (except this one, which is absolutely positively not suitable for work) and I wonder if I have missed out on the clear excellence that is ‘giraffe’ during the pre-baby-cobra years of my life. Plus, they turn out to be quite easy to draw: if I stop drawing at the bottom of their necks, they’re just vertical snakes with extra prongs on their heads. How many giraffes do you have?
About the CobrasI'm a C, C++, Objective C and PHP programmer. I develop various things for PCs, Macs and the iOS platforms. On and off I'm developing an iPhone game which I expect I shall never finish. I feature progress reports on how far I am from completing it in this blog along with me rattling on about learning French and any other junk I need to get off my chest. I shouldn't really need to say it in this day and age, but obviously, the opinions here are mine and not those of anyone who pays me... unless I've been bribed, in which case, all bets are off. There's more here.
