Well, here you guys are reading what I’m writing and here I am, so I guess we both got nothing really happening so I might as well tell you some awkward stories that happen to me all too frequently.

So one time my family was like “You know what would be fun. Let’s go to Radnor Lake and walk around” and I was like “Yeah totally dude, that’s my stuff.” My parents are really big on how great nature is, and the high point of their day is if they can get a glimpse of some illusive creature that lives in the all too mysterious park of Radnor Lake. Keep that in mind.

So we are walking along the path and we spot two women stopped and looking into the woods. My parents, with their love of nature, began intensely looking for what has caught the attention of these fellow walkers and find it to be two skinks (If you don’t know what that is, look at the article picture). Now you should know that my parents have accents on certain words because of their Yankee youth, and while that word should sound like skeenks when they say it, it sounds like skanks. You see where this is headed don’t you.

My dad in his excitement says, “Hey, look at those two skanks.”

Oh, no!

The two women turn around looking so offended, so my family makes a quick 180 and hustles away as fast as we can out of the woods and back to our car and drive home.

“That’s enough nature for today.”
