Okay, by now you must realize it hasn't been a while since I woke up. Typing that previous entry was the first thing that came into my mind.
Also, you'll realize that I didn't die... And... That's a good thing... Right?
This is an immediate follow-up to my last post. That was another delayed post intended for yesterday but posted today since I fell asleep the moment I stepped into my house. I didn't even bother checking what time it was or taking my shoes off. I just dropped my pack on the floor, fell flat on the bed and passed out. Open door and all.
After I wrote that entry last night, I must have spent around an hour and a half more getting myself filthy. My lamp surprisingly survived! Apparently, I underestimated my battery! The flickering was because my battery was improperly aligned inside as the support cap was loosened. That was probably caused by the fact that I dropped it twice during my trip. One short-heighted fall on a rock and the second was a long fall on a pile of dead branches. I could have sworn I saw a snake on that pile. Well, it didn't matter to me. I probably saw more than 8 snakes total through the trip.
Anyway, from now on, I'm all for Energizer Lithium cells!
"Energizer! Keep Going!"
Well, looks like I have nothing else to say about my trip. And, duh! I can't delve into more details about it so I might as well just shut up. My head is revolving all around those details and it's so depressing that I can't say anything other than getting cut and bruised and scratched and spotting a really big rat with my flashlight. Yeah, I did. It was huge and scary considering I was in its territory and I had no one to scream to for help! I feared the worst. Seeing it conjured all sorts of different potential endings. At one point, I imagined it calling its entire clan and inviting them to devour every bit of me. But, no. It ran away after 10 seconds of staring at me. Thank goodness!
Do I have to talk about the snakes? I think they're commonplace in woods. Never mind. There was nothing interesting about them. They didn't attack me. Heck, they didn't even stare at me! Stupid boring reptiles! And there was a huge monitor lizard, too. It was resting on the roots of a huge bamboo. For a moment, I actually thought it was an alligator.
What else? Hmmm... A couple of dead trees, a big domestic-looking stray cat eating a dead wild rabbit. It probably got lost as a kittie and grew up in the wild. I also knew it was a rabbit (even if it was half eaten) because of its ears. You can't go wrong with those. And, oh, I saw a monkey, too!
That's about enough already. I'll see what I can come up with to write about today.
