May 12, 2015 — The Mountain Lion in the Fridge
That’s the beginning of a rather creative blog post by a cancer survivor named Caitlin Feeley. It brought a smile to my face because it’s so accurate.
Not the mountain lion in the fridge part, of course: but the things various people say to you as you’re trying to claw your way up the mountain where the only creature capable of fighting off the mountain lion — a bear — happens to live. Things like, “That’s not really a mountain lion, it’s a puma,” and “I read that mountain lions are allergic to kale, have you tried rubbing kale on it?”
I don’t feel right about cutting and pasting the whole thing here, but here’s a link where you can read the whole piece.
Well done, Caitlin. You captured the experience.
