Sometimes people we pass ask my person how she keeps me away from them.
But for the first time today someone warned us about them.
A boy who had just discovered them.
I don’t think he was attacked, but he saw the danger.
Those things have attitude.
And some of them hang out right next to my trails.
So close that you have to be careful not to brush against them.
But I think that boy might have been overly concerned.
Let me see.
Nope, he’s right.
Away, you prickly pear! Away!
Don’t get so close to my trails.
