sometimes you're the windshield and sometimes you're the bug

i have been feeling indifferent towards things that i do not enjoy but have to because i am an adult 

i have a joy in my life and that is all that matters at this point

not things that i do not enjoy

those things, they do not matter

I fell down a muskrat hole.

Today I went fishing while my wife spent some time with her friend.

I went to a local waterining hole and chose to go to a spot that I heard has largemouth bass.

I have caught largemouth bass throughout my life, and even at this lake, but not at this specific spot.

This was my 2nd attempt at this exact location.

I had some hits whilst jigging a worm.

I threw alongside the coast.

I flipped under some low hanging brush and trees.

A nibble.

I thought to move and carefully walked along the waters edge in my beat up Adidas flip flops.

I stepped onto what I assumed was grass but in actuality, was a big hole covered with grass.

I fell into a muskrat hole.

I fell down to my knee, that is how deep this hole was.

Time slowed down and I had imagined Alice in wonderland falling down the rabbit hole.

My landing was not as nice as hers.

I felt as if I was trying to avoid something in that hole but I did not know what it was.

My big toe led in a dark, then water filled hole.

My big toe landed right in the top of the mouth piece of an aluminum can.

200 lbs pressure into the top of that can.

I sat on my ass and lifted my leg out not knowing what I would see.

I saw my top half of my big toe (above the nail) chunkily hanging and starting to bleed a lot.

I rode my bike home with a blood filled Adidas flip flop.

I got home and cleaned it and it was not as bad as I had thought but still pretty bad.

I thought I could have entirely lost a toe when I was coming out of that muskrat hole.

The pinky for sure would have gotten it.

From peaceful to serious in seconds.
