Ready for some Snipe Hunting?


Come on. It’ll be fun. I’ll go with you and even let you hold the flashlight.

What’s a snipe, you ask.

I really would have to show you one.

We’ll take the pickup truck, roll down the windows, turn off the radio and kill the lights.

You have to call them up, those snipes.

I’ll tell you how to make the call when we get in the middle of the pasture.

Sometimes, it takes all night to find those snipes. But, it’s worth it.

You ready?

About melindamcguirewrites

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950
