There in the hall a kid approached me, “Why are you here?" he asked.
P.S. More on whales: Han Hauser, a Marine Biologist,outfitted in SCUBA gear was used to swimming with large marine animals, so she wasn't surprised to see a humongous Humpback whale swimming toward her. Except he didn't swim past, but directly to her--not normal behavior. He began to bump her with his nose, not good when the animal is 20 tons. At one point he held her under his pectoral fin. This was serious.
Hauser was accompanied by a film crew so they caught it on film. Soon they saw a Tiger Shark swimming close. With the whale's help Hauser got to the boat. The whale then surfaced as though checking to see if she was alright. She yelled, "I love you too!"
(Later they found that whales will often protect seals from Killer Whales by holding them under their pectoral fins.)
