Several years ago, I wrote a blog post that involved a fictional feud between penguins and polar bears. A Very Angry Biologist shot off a Very Angry Email about how penguins and polar bears live on opposite sides of the planet, literally.
Recently, however, a boy held his penguin shaped backpack against the glass at The Pittsburgh Zoo, and, sure enough, a polar bear tried to attack it.
A penguin, however, is not a backpack. Even if you stuff one full of textbooks and camping supplies.
Who hasn't been a polar bear attacking something that appeared to be something you were diametrically opposed to before you understood its purpose?
Write about a time where you were wrong to attack a person or an idea. Did you then apologize for it, or did you troll on through to the other side?
