and to think i saw it on mulberry street.......

went running friday night, down by the lake through the woods, sunset magic light hour.  two or three miles away from the nearest street or sidewalk, a man passed me riding a unicycle down the gravel path. keep running i say to myself.  going down the boardwalk over the swamp around the lake, three "somethings" roll off the bank into the water and begin playing with one another chirping at me for having spoiled their privacy.  paused my run to stop and watch these somethings.  they turned out to be otters.  i didn't know there were otters in east texas, but evidently there are.  at least it wasn't alligators. i really did wonder if i was dreaming. and if i haven't woke up yet,  let me keep sleeping. if i never wake up,make my epitaph read "he came, he saw, he typed".  short,sweet and cheap.
