Touch Fluffy Tail
We don’t venture into the eastern woods. But accidents happen.

I recall being sent out to forage. “Don’t wander too deep.” As dangerous as it was, and I didn’t know why, the fruits in those trees were much too valuable to pass up. The territory was uncharted as far as I had been told. Uncharted because of the fearsome creatures that lurked there after dark. Uncharted because generation after generation had grown up in fear of those legends. And those why tried conquering those fears, they never returned.

For three days she sat in the mud and cried. Cried for her little boy to return.

And then he did. Limping, barely conscious, he emerged from the eastern woods. She ran to him, geld him tight. His clothes torn to shreds, his arms and face red with blood, but he seemed unharmed. He passed out in his mother’s arms, but it didn’t matter anymore. Somehow, he had survived. Gotten lost in the woods, and lived to tell the tale.

Blown out

So this is the power of exploding knees.

Another Friday, another run. It was a longer one this time though, I thought I could do it. And I could, ran the thing without struggling too much. But maybe it was still past my limits. Tonight, my knees haven’t felt comfortable at all. I thought I was just twisting them weirdly while sitting or something, but they’re actually on fire.

In which I am not the donkey.

There are many joys of learning a language. Sadly, sayings and expressions aren’t part of that. At least, most non-native speakers only get a surface-level grasp at the idioms the language contains. Doesn’t help that some are very regional, too. Anyway, I wanted to share a poor translation of a Dutch one: a donkey doesn’t bump into the same rock twice.

Food comas are amazing.

I live and work kind of weird hours. My alarm clock doesn’t go off until 10 AM, and I stay up until 2 AM at the very least. I front-load my day with personal errands out of necessity, most stores and businesses aren’t open late in the evening, and that actually works out pretty well. Places aren’t as busy during working hours, and I get to be out during the sunniest part of the day.
