Hey, what is this? This used to be my trail. Yesterday it was my trail. It’s always been my trail. It still smells like my trail. But now it’s got branches in the way, and freshly planted prickly pear cactus, and some square thing sticking out of the ground.
I guess I’ll have to go on my other trail. It’s a good trail too, but I like having options.
Oh, now I know why the first trail is blocked.
Somebody wanted me to go on the other trail because the dogs are out in the yard near the trail. And they like to bark at me. I think I’ll ignore them. That makes them bark even more.
But I’m still confused. How am I going to go on a trail when there’s cactus growing in the middle of it? It wasn’t there yesterday. Maybe it will be gone again tomorrow. My person says there’s been a trail there forever and it even has trail signs on it.
I guess someone needed to plant some cactus and wasn’t sure where to put it.
