There’s some kind of label on my trail cairn.
It’s never been here before.
I wonder what it’s supposed to do.
Maybe each trail cairn is going to get its own special tag.
Then when someone gives directions on my trails they don’t have to say, “Follow the cairns to the end of the trail.”
They could say, “Go past the red tagged cairn and turn left at the blue tagged cairn.”
That would make it so much easier to give directions.
Unless you forgot which tags were on which cairns.
If you told someone the wrong thing they might get really lost. They might end up at the trail that ends in a big hole instead of at the trail where they could climb a mountain like they really wanted to do.
Whoever put that tag on there needs to come up with something better.
But how am I going to tell them? I don’t even know who put that tag there.
Maybe if I sniff around I can find some clues.
I don’t know.
There’s been so many messages left here (including some of my old ones) that I don’t know if I’ll ever sort it all out.
Wait. What’s this?
This tag has another side.
The other side is a necklace.
And it says, “PASS IT ON!”
I’ve got it now.
This tag wasn’t left here to label the cairn – this necklace was left here for me.
So I could pass it on to the next one of my girlfriends that I see.
I wonder who my lucky girlfriend will be.
