Bubba was spinning, spinning, spinning and amazingly watching and thinking and learning. No one, then or later, figured out how Bubba learned to put two and two together, especially himself, but he wasn’t about to let anyone know, that’s for sure. He was in a difficult and unusual situation and needed to keep close confidence with just himself. He was fully aware that he shouldn’t be able to think about the things he was thinking, that he should be content to simply eat, drink, and run on his exercise wheel, but something interesting happened to him that made those things pointless. He was only a gerbil, yet he was suddenly reasoning like a human!
