You're a Special Kind of Different.

I was restocking a shelf when I heard Trailhead Supply’s front door open. I looked up, and a well dress women walks in.  She stands in the middle of the store and asks, “What kind of store is this?” 

“Well we sell trail riding equipment and packing gear for horses and mules,” I said. 

She looked at me and said, “Well I don’t have any of those!! Do you sell Greenies for cats?” 

I said, “No, I’m sorry.” 

“Well you should.” She said, “They are great for their teeth…I get so tired of brushing my cats teeth so I switched to greenies.”  Before I could respond to brushing a cats teeth…she asked if I knew why it snowed in the Midwest….

I said, “Because its winter?” 

No she responded, “It’s because of the tunnels.”


“They are digging tunnels under Lake Yellowstone and because they are(I have no idea who "they" are) coating the tunnel walls with spray on titanium and it has to be hot for the titanium to liquefy in order to be sprayed… that heat is causing Lake Yellowstone to evaporate and the evaporating water is then turning to steam which condensates on the atmospheric ceiling then is blows east with those big blue arrows on the news weather map to where it is colder.” Ah so we are back to winter in the midwest and turns to snow. 

So, at this point I had to refill my coffee cup.  “Can I ask where do the tunnels go?” 

“The underground cities of course…I ‘ve seen them, Donny took me there.” 


“For God’s sake,” she said, “Trump…..Our new President. Do you have??” She asked for something I never heard of….

I said, “No, I sure don’t.” 

She said, “You should. It’s great, it was developed by NASA as a disinfectant for the space shuttle, but works great for fly spray on horses.

“I thought you said you didn’t have horses?” 

“I don’t …I read about it in a science journal.”

“Would you like a cup of coffee, because I sure need another one.”

“No it messes with my ability to levitate. You know how to levitate don’t you?” 

“Like float?” I said.  

“Well Yes!!! and if you concentrate hard enough you can fragmentate.” 


“You can departiculate and your fragments can pass through nail holes and you can pass into another room.”

“I’ll have to work on that…Are you sure you don’t need or want a cup of coffee?“

“I’m good,” she said …………. 

Here is to all of your adventures real or not. Remember to make time to enjoy a cup…

Hope to see you on your trail wherever it may lead.

    You started writing IMMEDIATELY after she walked out the door, right. So as to properly record the event. I don’t think she’s from here.
