“Jimmy, go hook the hose up to the faucet.”
We were out in our backyard, in the suburbs, just before dark.
Jimmy came running back.
“I saw a big bear.” He pointed toward the faucet.
“A bear? In our yard?”
I took the hose and hooked it up. Jimmy ran into the house. For five, he had an active imagination. I watered the yard. When I finished and came in, Jimmy was asleep on the couch.
I forgot about the whole incident until the next morning when I unfolded the newspaper and saw the headline: “Bear Escapes From Local Circus.”
