The hardest part about all this: waiting for the month to end before letting the cat out of the bag and unofficially deciding on votes and commenting on which were best.

It's killing me. And there is still so much of the month left to go!

Did not end up where I thought I would
When do they ever? Plan all you want, but the story just wants to do its own thing!

@Hummus .... Beatrice Beast and the Scar Crusades .... What do you get when someone starts telling of their life's adventures? A tall tale which reveals less than you might think, and more than the truth covers.

@Vaz .... The Gift of Man .... What do you get when a tall tale is too true in the essence if not the details? A cautionary tale.

Animals + Tall Tales + memory = my story.

This was tough. Light rain and crackling thunder, made me think of it.

Mine's in. Would have been better with a few more words (first verse lacks an entire line, and rhyme) and my word counter suggested I just might have them - but hyphenated adjectives are so difficult to be certain of…

But it falls within the guidelines.
