Mr. C. Cow and I took a hike the other day to find a waterfall. We heard from a local bunny rabbit that it was a beautiful site to take pictures. I had to talk Mr. C. out of bringing a barrel with him on our waterfall hike. He thought it was the type that you had to go over in a barrel. I told him that, for safety reasons, no one was taking any barrels over the side of any waterfalls. Not even with safety goggles on. Not even with a helmet on. Not even if the helmet has flames on it. No one is going over a waterfall in a barrel. Slightly disappointed he put his gear away for another day (Fat chance Mr. C. Cow!) and off we went in search of this photogenic waterfall.
After hour three of searching we started to get agitated. Where the heck was this waterfall? Was there actually one around here? Was the bunny just pulling our leg? We stopped and asked a bunch of goats if they knew where it was.
Neither one knew of any waterfalls in the area. Mr. C. Cow was determined to find this mysterious place and I just wanted to go back to the camper. The goats were kind enough to give us directions to a local owl that might know more about the area then they did. Thanking them we went up a very steep set of stairs, a mile through some dense forest brush, over a stream, and found Mr. Owl.
Mr. Owl also knew of no waterfalls in the area. Had we taken a wrong turn someplace? Was this waterfall a real thing? Did a bunny get it wrong or did he just flat out lie to us? Were we ever going to just go back to the camper? I sat down to think about what to do next while Mr. C. Cow got into a heated discussion with Mr. Owl. Something about how many licks and lollipops. I wasn’t really paying that much attention.
When the conversation turned into a shouting match over confections I said we were packing it in, thanked Mr. Owl for his help, and ushered Mr. C. Cow out of there. A couple of hours (and wrong turns) later we were back at the camper. If I ever see that bunny rabbit again we are going to have words. Many words.
