Fed on 10/22.
Breakfast hearts are in the belly and we are off to a little prairie town about 4.5 hours away. Piz wanted to do a little trip before winter comes and stays until July. It’s one of MP’s favorite places to go, so we’re all for it.
I love these lip sailing shots! Piz took this one on his phone. Since he’s a real photographer, I shall credit him so.
The moon was so big and awesome! Round grass roll things and wind mills and air that’s barely breathable.
For whatever reason, the whole drive up was filled with airs so concentrated with scent particles that you could pretty much see it. It was an incredible malodorous ride you can’t get off, with stops at the Burning of Something Toxic station, the Caldron of Fermented High White Cell Count Urine station, the Shit station, and the Total Death Trap station (literally, for everyone) of the JBS Swift & Co meat processing factory.
This giant plant pumps out yellow dust-like airmass that can send any sentient being into a panic. It isn’t a directional thing; the death cloud just sits on the whole effing area. Piz and I had to quickly grab towels from the backseat (as I’m a well-prepared traveler) and put it over our nose and mouth. In the car! With the vent closed! And we still gagged.
It is quite a hell, and I’m not sure why it’s not horribly illegal (well, it is). What is even more perplexing is that I really couldn’t find anything about this much-more-than-just-an-odor. I googled the shit out of this and there isn’t that much (i.e., people complaining, Swift breaking smell rules) that came up.
Onto better thoughts. This is a hydrated dehydrated food for MP! I got some samples at a Pet Expo type thing a while ago; it’s great for traveling. Honest Kitchen is the brand, and I used to feed it occasionally before we went home prepared. (Unlike Sojo’s, a local company I would so love to support but just cannot. It’s a long enough story to make another post.)
Anyway, we get to stay at a sweet little apartment that belongs to Piz’s aunt and uncle. We found a nice big bowl for MP, and the humans ate a pizza, some veggie burgers, and a big tubby of mesclun greens. Driving makes you want to eat a lot. Then, we listened to the neighbors watch TV a notch below blaring, all night.
This is so awesome! I genuinely appreciate and enjoy experiences that I know will become funny soon after. Sometimes, I actually even laugh in advance.
