What does Sasquatch Know that We Don't?
|"Hi, how are you."|
Strange times, these, when up is down and wrong is right. It's times like these that require us to pay closer attention to what's going on around us. I had a reminder the other day while walking in West Campus in a place that is instantly recognizable to any Austinite or former UT student. There, before my eyes, strode Sasquatch. I watched him cross Guadalupe, fur shimmering in the light, head high. He slipped into the architecture building unnoticed in the crowded street.
|Seems like there's a Sasquatch on every corner|
I dismissed the encounter, attributing the sighing to too much internet surfing and bleary eyes until a few weeks later... A colleague asked me to dine with him at the corner taco truck. Thinking nothing of it, I accompanied him into the parking lot. To my astonishment, Sasquatch emerged from a hedgerow, He ordered two egg and potato tacos and vanished. When it was my turn to order, I asked the vendor if he'd noticed that Sasquatch had proceeded me in line.
He said, "You mean the guy wearing the red Chucks?"
"Forget it," I said, shaking my head.
|The cause of the slowdown on Mopac?|
My fellow Austinites... nay, my fellow Americans, take heed of my tale. Keep a watchful eye for Sasquatch. He moves among us in plain view and he seems to know something we do not.
