The ground was covered with snow and I had forgotten about THE HOLE.
THE HOLE was over a cess pool to my house.
All the human waste from my house (and wherever...and WHENEVER...else) had accumulated in THE HOLE.
The liquid was now at ground level.
As I took a step over THE HOLE my left leg went in.
With my right leg, I was able to hop out just in time.
My left Italian hiking boot had gotten totally immersed.
I quickly returned to my house and took off the boot.
I began pouring pinesol over it, and I kept imagining what might have been if I had stepped with both feet into THE HOLE.
It was not a pleasant thought.
I started a fire, became warm and cozy, and forgot about THE HOLE experience.
IT'S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND THE HOLE
