I made a video yesterday about Olga and her 36″ long bathtub. The video is here:
I realized this morning that I was paying too much attention to the ants, and I missed the elephant right in front of me.
In the video, I talk about how Forrest tells us that Olga has a bathtub that is just 36″ long. I also talked about how he sprinkled her ashed on Taos Mountain, and that Taos is in the 36th parallel. I didn’t realize the obvious hint right in front of all of us.
From The Thrill of the Chase, on page 115, in the chapter Tea With Olga:
“Her bathtub was just thirty-six inches long and looked crowded in her bathroom.”
He said: 36 inches long.
36 inches long = 36″ in longitude, where long is short for longitude.
How easy is that? Do you agree? Would that qualify as an elephant?
