Here's a tidbit of my story: Summers are generally borrrriiing at Gram's ranch, but not this one. Did you hear about the recent creature sightings in Cuero? Well then, let me be the first to tell you about the Chupa-freaking-cabra. Okay, so it's really called the Chupacabra; I was going for a dramatic effect.
Gram refuses to kill it even though the thing has eaten six of her baby calves. Yep, sucked the blood right out of them. I think she's flipped her lid, but she claims everything needs to eat. Blah, blah, blah. So anyways, the Sheriff over in DeWitt County videoed one running in front of his patrol car. I saw the tape. Creeeepppy! The thing looked completely bald, had a gigantic head, protruding fangs, and it had skin like an elephant. When it turned back and glared at the camera before scampering off the road, I thought, sheesh-louise! I would not want to stumble upon that critter in the woods.
Some say it's a hairless coyote or a cross of a Mexican Wolf and a coyote. But whatever it is, it's freaky. I've seen what it does to livestock, and it ain't pretty.
As if this wasn't enough excitement for one summer, the neighbor boy, my old tree-climbing buddy, had to go all gorgeous on me over the past school year. I'm talking, drool-all-over-him cute. Stutter-when-I-speak, slam-dunk, hot.
Candilynn might want to change the title of my story from Chasing the Chupacabras to Chasing a Boy & the Chupacabras.
So, if you see my author lurking around your blog, tell her Sealy Dixon's looking for her.
Thanks. ~Sealy D.
