Mike’s Next Adventure

Roaming Yeti Reemerges

Abominable-Snowman-Rudolph-Red-Nosed-Reindeer copy

Yeti opens a crusted eye to a den bathed in overcast winter light. He is sore from shoveling the path to his cave, and his shoulders scream as he rubs his scruff.

His gut protrudes; ebbing and flowing with labored breath.

What kind of abominable holiday bender…?

Days upon days of carnivorous treats – swine, squirrel, rabbit, puppet, cow – did he really eat a puppet?

Perhaps it was some kid’s teddy bear. Maybe he accidentally ate someone’s child…

He coughs up a hunk of felt.

Definitely puppet.

Oh how the festive holiday wine flowed…

The Yeti grumbles and mumbles, stretching his hairy legs; his back cracks, his liver groans – he plops down from his nest.

In the words of Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon – quite possibly the greatest 80’s action series;  “Riggs, I’m getting too old for this shit!”


Thief – the Yeti’s Puma friend/cohabiter – fearful of the sight of the rising ‘Squatch, ends his ball-less groin licking to flee the room.

Shuffle, shuffle, scuffle and shower.

Yeti why you wake at such a late hour?

“Life is taxing”

“I’ve been relaxing.”

“Who the fuck are you – Matt Lauer?”

He washes his fur.

He washes his parts.

Tries not to pass out

from hot shower farts.

A shit

A shave

Time to behave

Pack up the ornaments –


Except for this one – it’s staying up.

the yule log

Is today the day he dusts off the blog?

Freshly cleansed, the Yeti reemerges – plugs back into reality – checks his emails; checks his facebook, and finally, WordPress.

Lots of new followers, not much traffic, tons of spam from Indonesia; Yeti makes a mental note to go door to door upon his next visit to Sumatra.

Roam About blog is dead.

He curses the more ambitious holiday bloggos in ancient Yetitian:

“Unnnh Pffffffft Aarrrrrgh Snarrrrrrrr!”

Translation: Bastards!

The Mayans were wrong; it’s time to go on.


And start writing again.

Happy ’13, My Dear Readers!

And a special Happy 4345 to my Korean Followers!

I’m back – miss me?

      Same to you! As grandma used to say – May your squirrels be shorn.

    Your imagery is vivid for sure. I feel as if i was there with your flatmate when the yeti awakened – and I am not sure I wanted to be :).


    1. mabukach says:

      Hahaha – thanks, Sara – and no, you didn’t want to be within a square mile of the Yeti awakening.
