First external blog contact

Cool. Contact made with another member of the blogosphere: a Canadian blog, www.ghostofaflea.com/
The blog protocol is for me to say to y'all "drop by and say 'hi'. Use the blog's comments section, that is. [As I mentioned to some of you, incidently, the plural of "y'all" is "all y'all"!]
However, note vis a vis blog protocol, a blog link doesn't mean advocacy of the blog's content. This will not be part of course grading!
Anyone figure out the significance of the blog's name?

Some shadow of a memory tells me that ghost of a flea is some mythical creature. One of my high-school friends told me that fleas were the reincarnation of blood-thirsty humans. Fleas are small because if they weren't, the human race would quickly go extinct. There's a mythical creature (called ghost of a flea) that depicts what a human sized flea would look like with a human soul. I may have the name confused with the wrong story, but I remember being really grosed out when I heard this story, so it might relate.

Hi Brittany:
Good attempt: thorough and plausible. You are definitely thinking like a literary scholar!
