My friend Hannah told me about this new word she learned the other week. Conglutinates. Some baby mussels are conglutinates, and they glob together in the shape and colour of wee fish, so that a real fish will come along and eat them up, so that the wee mussels can attach parasite-wise for a while to get a bit bigger and then get where they want to go. Which factoid perhaps leads one to ponder the very oddness of the world slash worldmaker.
