When I was at boarding school during my high school years, a couple of times a year the whole school would go to a camp ground. This was always a lot of fun. The change of pace was great, and there was plenty of time to explore.
One time my friend Rutsu and I were exploring near the creek. A couple of the boys walked up and we joked back and forth with them. One of the boys said, “Yeah, well you’re standing on a dead dog.”
“Ha, ha!” We weren’t going to fall for that one.
“No, really you are,” one of the boys insisted.
Rutsu shifted her weight to her right foot as she looked down. As she did this, she crunched the head of a very, very dead dog. It was just skin and skeleton. I was on the other end of it. We jumped off and screamed with arms all a flail. Rutsu took off running straight for the creek. I thought she was going to run right in the water, but she stopped just in time.
I have a tendency to stick my foot in it rather often, but this is probably the grossest place my feet have ever actually landed.

How funny that you didn’t notice. At least it had been dead a while!

Oh my gosh! I would’ve thrown up right then and there. And everytime I thought of it afterwards.

Maybe I’ve lived on the farm too long, but stepping on or in something disgusting is a daily occurrence. 😉
We had a dead dog delivered to our home in a delivery of dirt for our in ground pool. Can you say nasty! At least I didn’t step on him though!
oh man! I remember you telling us this story in class one time!! I probably wouldve ran in the creek! lol
Ok, Esther– that is still pretty gross! but at least you had shoes on! 😀
Ugh! I probably would’ve spazzed out, too! 😉
Here in the Hollow, I’m always picking up some residue!…:)JP
This would be your grossest memory ever:( Glad it was you and not me. Ooh!
