The People Trap

Penny on the TrailYou want me to sniff what so you can take a picture?

A lucky penny on my trail? I don’t even know what a lucky penny is. And it has absolutely no sniffing appeal at all. You sniff it.

What’s it doing on my trails anyway? Especially this one. Hardly anyone walks on this trail? When was the last time you saw somebody while we were walking on this trail?

You know what, person? I bet someone put that penny there on purpose. It’s like people bait.

If somebody put treats down I’d chomp them up, and follow the trail looking for more. If a kid put Reese’s Pieces on the trail there’d be an ET following along for sure.

English: Loose Reese's Pieces candies.

But if somebody puts a penny on the trail, some person is going to pick it up and probably look for more.

I don’t know what it is with you people. What’s the attraction of those little round metal things? They don’t smell good, they don’t taste good, and they don’t even look good – at least not the dirty old ones you find on trails.

You’d better watch it person. Someone’s going to leave a trail of those things and lead you into a trap.

Yeah, I know I said I’d follow treats. But I wouldn’t mind being led into a treat trap. Who’d want to be in a trap full of little round metal things?

Hey person, never mind what I said. You just keep looking for those lucky pennies. And take lots of pictures of them.
