Somehow in the course of a texting conversation, we started talking about Sasquatches. Naturally. And so the following conversation happened.
Katie – You’ll be the master! TEACH THEM HOW TO SQUATCH! It will be a good life skill for them.
Monica – There’s something in the pasture!! I bet its a squatch…I know it has to be. I should do some tree knocks.
Katie – AHHH a squatch!!! Did you do some calls?
Monica – Not this time. This time I just sat back and listened.
Katie – That’s probably wise. I’m sure it could sense your presence and you not doing anything communicated friend to it. I’m sure.
Monica – I told dad too and he thinks it was a good idea to sit and listen because that’s probably why no one ever sees them, they’re always being scared of by noise.
Katie – Agreed. You took a big step forward with this guy. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Monica – Hopefully contact. But I won’t push it. Slow and steady.
Katie – That’s really very wise. Perhaps he’ll let you see him next time. Maybe he’ll knock a tree and point at you as if to say, that’s for you Monica, friend to the Squatches.
Monica – I’ll be like the Jane Goodall with squatches.
Katie – Documentaries will be made about you.
Monica – Oh I’m fully expecting the Nobel Prize for my work.
Katie – You totally should. “Thank you for granting me this honor. The money from this prize will go towards my Sasquatch Foundation which you are all aware of. I think you and the Squatches thank you.”
Monica – If Obama can get one for doing nothing…you better believe I’ll get one, best him and bring dignity back to the name of Nobel!
