my “The shape of water line “monologue

 

When I was a little guy- I found a turtle sitting out in the middle of the road. Crossing it slowly. Car could run it over any minute.

So, I picked it up, took it to a pond way back behind my house… and I laid it down under a big camphor tree, and I thought… “Mmmh- It’s gonna be so happy here”. And I left it there.

But that night I figured out I had no idea where it was going… Far as I know it was bringing food to its nest or- looking to porcreate- or escaping an owl. And maybe the worst place to keep it- maybe the place it was running from was that pond under that camphor tree.

I didn’t care. I just did what I wanted with it.

 

Last year when i was still 38 year old – I found a squirel crossing out in the middle of the road. Crossing it fast. Car ran it over in a minute.

So, I looked at it up, didnt touch it it to a pond way back behind my house… and I thought it down under a big camphor tree, and I thought… “Mmmh- It’s gonna be so happy there”. And I forgot about it.

But today I figured out I had no idea where it was going… Far as I know it was bringing food to its nest or- looking to porcreate- or escaping an owl! And maybe the worst place to it wanted to go to- maybe the place it was running from was that pond under that camphor tree.

I didn’t care. I just didnt what I wanted with it.
