— a watersnake that was probably not poisonous
— baby alligators in a swamp
— a convenience store that sold alligator heads
— USA- and CSA-branded boot knives in the same display
— a raccoon
— a teenage boy saying, “The raccoon’s just sitting there! I could drop a knife on it and make a coonskin cap!”
— the teenage boy’s female companion looking up in time to catch my reaction.
— absolutely nothing out of the rearview mirror, because my things were piled too high in the car to look out of it. 

And now I am living with my husband. It’s the little things.
