28 Days of Writing - Tastes like chicken

We join our heroes, Reffie and Evil Twin, on a mountain somewhere.  Reffie is leading a group of hikers.....somewhere.  And Evil Twin?  We aren't sure what has happened to her.


OK folks, it looks like we're stuck on this mountain overnight.  Let's get in the tent out of the rain so we can open our packs and turn out our pockets and see what we have for food tonight.


Wow.  This is an interesting pile of, er, stuff:

  • $1.53 - I hope that's not all you have for my tip.
  • 1 broken and crumbly granola bar - Ok, this looks promising.
  • 3 used tissues - I sure hope that isn't from your last trip to the bushes, Joe.
  • 2 dog biscuits - Well, um, Rover won't go hungry.
  • Rover - No, we're not that desperate.  Keep him away from that granola bar.
  • A pocket knife - Aha!

Here's the plan.  There is a reason this canyon is called Rattlesnake Canyon.  What do you think we've been hearing?  Joe, you're looking brave and I bet you're skilled with that knife.  You kill a few of those snakes.  The rest of us will see if we can get a fire going.

Cheer up, folks. They taste like chicken.


More chickens are laying eggs here.

I've heard that about rattlesnake but never was curious enough to give it a go.

I almost stepped on a rattlesnake, once. Never did get to taste it, so I'm not sure about that chicken taste.

If Evil Twin were to find a rattlesnake, would she try to kiss it? What would happen if she did?

Stay tuned for more exciting adventures of. . . .

Blessings and Bear hugs (not to he snake, though)!

Rattlesnake does taste a bit like chicken only gamier. A little tougher too. I enjoyed your list of items put into the pile. You did a nice job of connecting those items to the people.

I was married to a cowboy. He ate rattlesnake. Ugh. He was nasty!

I like to try new things, but I'm not sure I care to sample rattler.

This is definitely one of those times I'm SO happy to be a vegetarian! VERY funny post though ;)

@Cheryl - Me, neither.

@Rob-bear - I would be more worried about Cat playing with a rattlesnake. ;)

@Malisa - Thanks. Ugh on the snack. ;)

@Linda M - Ugh. What a joy.

@Linda - I'm right there with you.

@noname - Haha. Um, google?

@Katherine - I think the pooch is safe.

@Michelle - Thanks. Yeah, I can see the advantage. ;) said...

I think I'll be happy just gnawing on those dog biscuits.
