you never know with nature

Some people like twigs. Some people loathe figs. There are even people who have a fear of the tippity tapping that
a branch makes on your window there. Scrapety scratchety it goes.
That scared me, one time, when I was about 14.
Far too old to be scared, although I had been watching Salem's Lot.
That bit where the kid is a vampire now and he scratches at the other
kids window there.
That's the bit that I thought was happening.
It wasn't though, it was just a branch from a climbing vine thing.
