Bigfoot – A to Z Blogging Challenge

20130402-143949.jpg

I’ve had enough. Enough of people tramping through the woods, enough of inept spies in high-vis vests, enough of hidden camera traps and tranquilliser guns.

At first it was just a bit of fun – my father showed me the ropes, taught me how to raid Appalachian farmhouses without the stinging metal bite of buckshot against my thighs, taught me how to know when a pack of hunters has had just the right amount of bourbon to take grainy photos instead of pot shots.

It was a game.

But now you come barging in, crashing onto my property without an invitation.

Trespassing. I know now what it feels like to have my privacy violated, to have my children threatened…I’ve had enough.

Yes, I’m real.

Sasquatch, Big Foot – whatever you want to call me, my name is Clarence. My wife is Cindy.

Who cares if I wear a wristwatch?

Ok, the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I wrote about a were-beastie yesterday, and took my inspiration from my copy of Roget’s Thesaurus. Today I realised that I had already thought up the perfect “theme” for my A to Z challenge: the Under-Represented Monsters. So today is Bigfoot – hardly under-represented, but I’ve never seen a Bigfoot story from its perspective. So, onto those monsters then…

    This was wonderful! Being from East Texas, I heard a lot of tales about Big Foot. Found myself looking for him everytime I drove through the Piney Woods. 🙂

    Great story. Reminded me of Ron Carlson’s stories Bigfoot Stole My Wife and I am Bigfoot. Looking forward to seeing more Under-Represented Monsters.

  5. I got a chuckle at this — particularly the name “Clarence”. Not sure why that is… Oh well! 🙂

    LOL! That is awesome. Never in a million years would I have thought to write something from Big Foot’s perspective. Great job. 🙂

    I’ve always loved stories from the “enemy/monster”‘s point of view, such as Grendel. Good luck with the A-Z Challenge!
