Terra Simianus

Again I get into it with the Grade Two Ursuline. Looking at the world map stuck to the blackboard I asked, “So what’s on the other side?”
     The B-side of the earthly album.
     With a furrowed unibrow she asked, “What do you mean?”
     “I mean . . . what part of the world is left to discover?” Honestly, it was like talking to an enormous, thick Penguin.
     But she had the last laugh. “Oh, they know where everything is now . . . .” And with those words Sister Mary Diane destroyed my plan to discover the glorious continent of Laurasia, a catechism-free land full of monkeys.
