I've always wanted to be an expert on something people care about. That's why I got my doctorate in medieval literature.
As it turns out, I grossly overestimated the popularity of The Canterbury Tales.
This week, I've been given a second chance. I can say with a tremendous amount confidence that I know more about marine otters and their habitats than most people in America.
For the first time in my life, I feel whole.
What endangered animal/historical figure/national park/U.S. President is your subject of specialty?
As long as it's not the marine otter, we can be friends.
