I found this in my backyard several months ago.
I was extremely perplexed when I found this because I have a fenced-in backyard.
I strongly encouraged my roommate to take the mystery item to Scrabble club, because one of her Scrabble buddies is a veterinarian. (I wrapped it in a little produce baggie for the trip.)
It was identified as a deer jawbone. I have no idea how a deer’s jaw got into my yard. I suspect alien activity.
I kept the jawbone for the novelty. Plus, you never know when you’ll need an extra jawbone. I chew a lot of gum. I might need a replacement jaw someday. When that day comes, I’ll go to my basement and get my extra jaw. It’ll probably be a little large, but I’ll make it work.
Sunday evening, John said he had a present for me. I had a present for him, too, since it was May Day and I like to observe every holiday in my planner.
My present to John = dark chocolate.
His present to me =
This new “friend” was found during a mushroom hunt. It appears to be a deer skull sans jawbone.
I reunited the skull with the jawbone. Now, I just need the rest of the deer. I think it was a doe…a deer…a female deer.
