Florida Kid Falls into Cactus
As tends to happen when you play backyard football.
Where he had landed, beneath the fallen leaves, was a short scrubby cactus someone had planted or thrown out years ago. This prickly little beast did not, thankfully, have the giant stickers you might expect. Otherwise, Blayze’s catch may have been far bloodier. Rather, this little cactus was covered with what botanists call “glochids.”
Well that’s gonna take awhile to clean up.
