Those Damn Mushrooms!
Published on Thursday, September 5, 2013 by

Funny story, these damn mushrooms.

When Ziva and Mike first announced this photo contest, I began to think of ideas.  You can imagine my thrill upon noticing GIANT, GORGEOUS, TALL and MAJESTIC mushrooms growing under my neighbor’s mailbox while on my way to work.

“As soon as I get home I am going to race over and take pictures!”

My luck?  I get home and have to leave right away to get a child to an appointment.  What do I see on my way out?  Several severed mushrooms lying prostrate on the grass.  DANGIT!

“That’s OK.  I will take pictures of that when I return.  Even THAT looks pretty darn cool.”

My luck?  When I return home, I see a clear plastic bag on my neighbor’s driveway, filled with dying mushrooms.  WHAT THE….??!!

Not to be deterred, I ran in to get my camera.  A bag of dead mushrooms is worth two in the bush, no?

I grabbed my camera, flew out the door, down the driveway and….  The mushroom bag was gone.

MikeWJ, were you behind all this?!

After falling to my knees and screaming, “WHYYYYYYYYY!??!?!?!?” I went to my back yard and took a stupid photo of a stupid bunch of mushrooms.
