Haven’t done Snippet for a while, but I can’t resist this time.
It was around 8:25 in the morning. I was rushing, hoping to get to San Luis Obispo Museum on time since I promised to volunteer in… oh, 8:30 (Yep, I bike very fast today)
I open the door. I have not spoke a single word yet, since it is morning and my only housemate Lauren is sleeping. I look up.
I spoke the first sentence today.
“Is it me, or is there three turkey outside our door?”
My brain was blank for several moment, if not temporarily short-circuited. It was soon follow by, “Wait, is there four… No, five? Wait, are they really turkey? What the heck are they!?”
Th grayish, thin, turkey bird simply just walk down the tree shrub, completely ignoring me while I try to pick up my jaw up from the ground.
Ah, the wonder of living beneath a mountain and suburban. Mountain Lion on my street the first year. Wild deer, raccoon family with babies, crane, vultures, giant cat and giant fish near Stenner Glenn during second and third year. Then black widow outside the window and five wild turkey first thing in the morning during fourth year…
Next I know, I will see a bear.
Edit: I have not seen a bear in SLO. However, less than a year later, a bear did wandered into SLO, although it was at the other side of the town… Jinx?
