Listening to every heart
Dang. So the stuffed jack-a-lope I saw in Wall Drug, South Dakota, in 1970 was a figment of my imagination, and not real at all?
Wasn't it really stuffed? Or did a figment, in this instance, become a non-existant reality?
I touched it. Saw it. Had I gotten close enough to smell it, I am sure it would have resembled dust, hair, and dried bone to my olfactory senses. I didn't hear it make a sound, possibly because it was "scared stiff"...*wink*...
So while I believe I can safely say that I may never see a "real" jack-a-lope in life, I do know jack-a-lopes exist in some form and therefore, makes them "real".
