When Bigfoot Comes To Town

Well, no, actually.
If it turns out to be real, we'll all know soon enough, and that would be just the coolest thing.
Bigfoot? Real after all? I could dig it.
But the dillio is that right up until the moment before Bigfoot is really found, if that is even possible, everything else up to that point is
probably 100% claptrap, folderol and perhaps even horsefeathers (and I don't use that term lightly).
Which is why after about the first few dozen “close calls”, I stopped tensing up when someone made a claim along these lines.
Fool me once, shame on you, fool me a hundred times, check for a freakin' pulse because my brain ain't on if that happens, bud.
Skeptics are born of experience.
I've read this story before. Different names, different places, but the same damn story.
That's why I write my own. For the variety, if nothing else.
So far, nothing but reruns on the Bigfoot Channel, I'm sorry to say.
Edit: If I sound bitter, well, yes, yes I am. But I do appreciate the enthusiasm of others for subjects such as these (including yours, by the
way), because that becomes an interest of its own. There's nothing wrong with having an open mind, and there's nothing wrong with accepting the
possibility that a huge, reclusive hominid exists wild in North America. But after a while, well, you know...
