One thing I'm not is a woodsman. Sarah's parents' 50-acre property abuts a state forest. When Sarah asked me to join her on a search for edibles on the other side of the fence, I reluctantly went. We were told to watch for snakes but what drove me to distraction were the mosquitoes feasting on my legs. Tomorrow, a bear will come down out of these same woods, but my continual belching and singing was enough to keep the large mammals at bay today.
