MCF (left), Pollaris13 (right) and I (middle) walk into a bar... wait, wrong story... we walk into a park and follow a path through some woods. A clearing emerges and a field of what were once pretty wildflowers is now before us as dried stalks a plenty.
There are two paths... do you go left or right... wait a minute! This isn't choose your own adventure.
We pass a group of young teenagers and one chunky kid tells his friends "I'll be right back. I just want to see what's around this bend." We laughed about this thinking we just entered a bad Long Island horror flick.
Through the thicket of "once were flowers" brought us to a clearing with a circle of rocks surrounded by a circle of trees. Pollaris13 decides that this area needs a pentagram and sends me to collect sticks. I hear an evil laugh escape his lips as he explains it is not an evil symbol but pagan in nature.
MCF steps back, fearing that a portal is about to open that will spew forth demons and brimstone. I snap a picture of us looking at our handiwork and chuckle as we discuss what fun it would be if it appeared on the evenings local news: "SATANIC RITUALISTIC ALTER FOUND AT AREA PARK!"
Hey, we didn't leave a body there... wait... isn't that that chunky kid we saw a while back on the trail?
I go back to look at my photo and realize that the sun hit that center stick in such a way that it created a satanic... I mean pagan... arrow pointing right at Pollaris13. Maybe MCF should have been a little more diligent when he tried to warn me.
I feel like a freakin' goonie stuck in Stand By Me. I wonder who came across that scene after we left... ;)
