Today's the Day

I look at my watch… only three minutes until six o’clock.

If I survive until then…
maybe I can make it out of these woods.

They are unaware of me up here in my tree stand.

When I was told I didn’t have to work today, I thought it would be a great day to get some crossbow hunting in before the season ended…
but I only brought a half dozen bolts.

At six o’clock, my watch emits a soft beep.

All eyes turn towards me as the mommies and daddies arrive.

I don’t think I’ll survive this year’s picnic.
