Dream Vengeance

El Cap: Gator got in our tent last night.

Me: Excuse me?
El Cap: Right? I had a dream last night a gator got in our tent.
Me: Why are you telling me this?
El Cap: Because I was running faster than you and thought better of it, so I slowed down and you started to overtake me.
Me: I just left you?
El Cap: Uh-huh.
Me: So that’s why you’re telling me this a week before we go camping, to punish me?
El Cap: How is that punishing you?
Me: Because now that’s all I’ll think about!
El Cap: Hunh.

I write. I take pictures. I love my dog. I love Florida. My 2016 book, 'Backroads of Paradise' did really well for the publisher and now I feel a ridiculous amount of pressure to finish the second book.
