"Do you have fireflys in Indiana, or lightning-bugs as we call them here?"

As many of you know, I'm working third shift these days, which means it's dark when I drive to work. As I'm driving along, I frequently see along the shoulder that charming/soothing … *blink* … *blink* … that says "oooh, fireflies." Then I realize that the *blink* doesn't have *blink* quite enough *blink* green in it *blink* in fact *blink* it's very *blink* orange-yellow *blink* and then I realize I've been seeing the reflectors on a bicycle's pedals… Even so, it's kind of nice; I rather like it, and I like having been reminded of fireflies (rather than, perhaps, resenting that I've been momentarily fooled).
