As the wind and rain lashed against the side of his little fishing boat, Captain Michael Rush took shelter in the cabin, clutching a tattered copy of David Lewis’s Counterfactuals.
Amazing, he thought to himself, I have literally billions of counterparts. One of them might even be a talented philosopher…
Many moons ago my good friend Dr Michael Rush told me about his delightfully inane project of writing one limerick for every day of the year (He did it too!). It was this fine gentleman that inspired my own project of one mini-saga for every day of the year, and today is his Birthday! So, this one’s for you Michael and, as a special treat, here’s a limerick in honour of the project that inspired my own:
Of all the world’s many bearded folk,
there’s one who’s an outstanding bloke.
His name’s Michael rush,
he makes the girls blush,
and that’s before he’s even spoke.
Happy Birthday Michael! I don’t know why, but I’ve always imagined you’d make an excellent sea Captain. In case you were wondering what your seafaring counterpart would look like, here he is wondering about you.
That’s all for today, see you all tomorrow. Pip pip!
