What Pegman Saw: I’d Rather the Rocks

OMG! My belly feels giddy. No head for heights; not sure of my feet. But I said I would meet him wherever he said. Huh, I thought he’d pick somewhere roadside, where he could make a quick getaway. But nah, he said, Let’s make it apt.

Ah, here he comes. Looks like a regular hiker.

No greeting, no look, just a small nondescript bag dropped as he passes. Oh, that tinkle,  music to the ears. But, follicles! It’s rolling. Oh please, please, stop. If I run I might trip. Oh, and now someone’s coming the other way. Drats!

Whoa, got it! And now to check on the goods. He’d better not have diddled me. Oh yay, oh yay! One hundred high grade sparkling diamonds. Perhaps these rocks aren’t such a bad place to meet. He could have said to meet on a glacier.

    I don’t blame him/her for not wanting to have to run after a rolling bag on that slope!

    Welcome to Pegman, Crispina! What a fun start — I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster. And I agree with Dale — I wouldn’t want to chase anything rolling down those steps either. Too much like a real roller coaster, but without a track to keep you in line.
