Random Acts of Irony: Mythic Moose

February 20, 2014

So Tech Support was working up in Cape Breton and called me while driving* the Cabot Trail.

moose cropMe: (jealously) Seen any good animals this trip?

Tech Support: (ranty) You know, everywhere I’ve stopped people keep saying “Oh, watch out for moose, watch out for moose,” and I haven’t seen a single one!

Me: (secretly glad) No moose, huh?

Tech Support: (bitterly) Not. One. Moose. I swear, I’m starting to think these moose are mythic–OH, BAD WORD!!

Me: (mildly panicked) You OK over there?

Tech Support: (laughing hysterically) I did not hit the moose.

How about you – any wildlife sightings today? 🙂
