This morning I stepped on a cool, squishy something. I have cats. I have cats that hunt. My mind immediately went to, "Oh my Deity! I bet I'm standing on a dead lizard or salamander." I didn't want to look.
Slowly, I lifted my foot off, pleased that whatever it was didn't stick to the bottom of my foot. It was BRIGHT neon green. Sweet monkey fritters!?! I didn't have my glasses on yet and couldn't fathom what critter could be that color. So, I go hunt down my glasses to investigate the squishy green thing and discovered I was totally freaking out over a soft foam earplug.
