Drought At The Huntington

Poseidon quietly considered whether or not the Mondo grass needed dividing.  He was happy to be out of the temple and into the Cycad garden--people had been phoning non-stop, pestering him with desalinization schemes.  

Later, while he knocked soil off his trident, he saw Amphitrite rush out towards him, alarmed, with a yellow bottle in her hand.  It was only then he realized he'd forgotten to apply sunscreen.  That scamp Apollo had burnt him again.

  1. Very clever! Poseidon Sea Salt has a nice ring to it - maybe he can market the byproduct of of those desalinization operations.

  3. Big bonus points for Amphitrite mention; someone actually read their Bulfinch!
