From My Lab Notebook: The Thymus

by Will on September 23, 2010

The Thymus is a tragic figure, much in the pattern of Puff the Magic Dragon. A friend throughout childhood, it finds itself abandoned and neglected by the mature adult — a mature adult who only came about, ironically, due to the Thymus’s persistant efforts. Had the Thymus been better understood in Bill Shakespeare’s time, he’d no doubt have written a great play about its self-defeating exertions. The highlight would have been an extended soliloquy by the Thymus.
