Slight Mudifications

“Yup, that’d be trespassing,” the man said. Do you think that stopped me?

Of course it did! There was a legal way to get to the river two blocks down, only a slight modification to my plan.

Little did I know that I was due for a great psychological trauma- with socks. But if I had, I might have thought, “Great people always have psychological traumas.” I probably would’ve been wrong, but I might have thought that. Are you gonna be great or keep your mental state? Hold on!

Hold on, I said to myself as I traversed a 2 foot chasm on a makeshift rope vine by the river. I don’t know why it was there, but it was truly diVine.

Soon after that, I came across a noisy squirrel.

“Chirp cheet choit” it said at me. “Chickle doink chip” I said back. It replied louder, hungering after the biggest nut he had ever met. I had never been hungered after by a squirrel before, and it was uncomfortable. Extremely. So I left.

Following the river, I had to trudge through mud that was like glue. It caked itself to my shoes, which start to fall off my feet from the weight. Little did I know I would almost lose my feet too, soon.

Being the galoot I am, I continued through the mud. Soon I came to a little bay in the river, and I couldn’t resist the temptation to bathe my feet in the river’s luxurious goodness.

My socks and shoes came off and I slid into the water. It was like a sundae from a Yeti. Scary but exhilarating. And really cold.

By the time my feet resembled the background of the Soviet flag I decided to step out. Problem was, my feet were caked in mud top to bottom. I tried to rub it off. Now my hands were muddy too!

I knew I couldn’t let Jack Frost bite off my feet, so I pulled my socks on over the mud. It was so repulsive I tried to forget there were feet on my legs. Then I thought, “How will I get home? I have no feet!” Then I remembered I had feet and squelched home.
