So, my pal and I were working on a project together in the back yard and I thought of something great. He was digging around and doing things with a bit of wood, and I was just pretty much hanging around. Oh, and I was bringing sticks over to help out, but those weren’t the sticks he wanted to use, so I got bored.
What else is there to do but dig around to see if I could find the right things to help out my pal. Turns out, you end up digging up strange things around the yard.
What is that thing I just found? Well, it’s the roots of the bushes next to me. They do not taste very good, but very chewy indeed. I did find one root that was really good though, it was a “car root” that my pal had stashed in the garden. I guess he was trying to grow a fresh car, but it did taste good. So it was totally worth it.
Probably the neatest thing you find would be all the bugs. There are all sorts of things that creep around in the dirt, especially if you get to dig in the garden spots. But you aren’t supposed to do that, are you…
The big problem with bugs is that some might bite back. I found this out a time or two when I was snacking on some watermelon, and found that I was not the only one doing so. And then those pesky bugs started trying to snack on me. So I snacked on them. They do not taste good though, so avoid snacking on bugs that snack on you and watermelons.
But some taste good though, so don’t toss them all out with the few odd ones. In fact, my very favorite one is the buttery flies that hang around the garden. I snacked one a while back, but I can’t figure out why my pal calls them buttery flies. They do not taste anything like butter. Maybe you need some bread, and perhaps some ham, and a tomato too.
Other critters are buried in the yard too though, so don’t get caught up thinking about tasty bugs. I almost dug up a squirrel once, who happened to be stashing all manner of things in his little hole he’d dug. So I dug right after him, but never did find him, and then there was a huge hole in the yard. Good thing is, I had plenty of sticks to bury so no prob.
Digging around the yard, you may even find stinky things that maybe should stay buried, but they’re just so interesting though. If you do dig up something odd, don’t let your pal get a whiff of it or you might get in trouble. I haven’t figured out why this happens, but it does. And I always seem to get a tummy ache around the same time too, so perhaps stinky things are not the best thing to go digging up.
I’ve rooted and looted around the yard enough times to find some really strange things buried back here, all of which I get to show off to my pal and let him know what awesome things I do for him. Yes, I do it all for him. My pal. And then he goes and throws it away. Oh well.
