And so Pim stood upon the shore and watched the departure of 8,191 siblings Pim would never see again.

How I came to write Pim
People often ask how I came to write Pim. It seems like a thousand years since I discovered Pim, or that Pim discovered me. Thankfully I kept detailed notes and saved photos from that time. While I can’t swear to the absolute accuracy of what you are about to read, I have done my best to capture the essence of how Pim entered my life.
And so a few minutes before 8,192 were set to divide into 16,384 Pim had an idea.
And so when Slim disentangled slimself from prison yet again, Slim returned to a house swollen with budding Pims.
Locked out of Pim’s jar Pim indeed divided in 2. Then 2 divided into 4. Then 4 into 8. Then 8 into 16. And so on. Continue doing the math and you’ll discover just how alarming the progression was.
Before going to jail Slim put a lock on Pim’s jar. If Pims are not kept in salt water overnight they divide in two!
Slim called Pim because Slim was back in jail for stealing a 1970 Eldorado. Slim was enjoying it there.
Pim: I fear my sibling Slim is making the kind of choices that will send him to jail again.
Unfortunately a lot of Pim’s library mysteriously disappeared. Including the first copy of Pim’s own ‘PIM’!
Pim: I like to imagine I’m on the shelf with other authors. Wondering who the reader will choose.
My sibling, Slim, is very hungry whenever he returns from jail.
