Milo froze. His mind fell into a swirl of questions. Did they see me? Do I look enough like one of these rocks? Can I out-hop these guys? What is the meaning of life? Do you know the muffin man? Who closes the door when the bus driver gets off? The questions were coming faster than answers ever could. Milo finally realized he was just getting his picture taken, which triggered a host of new questions. Is this lighting flattering? Do these rocks make me look fat? Is this going on Instagram?
