Buster is a 12 foot scorpion who also happens to be my friend.

I met Buster when I got lost in the desert last winter. I thought Buster was a mirage so I didn’t freak out. I held out my hand to greet him. Buster was surprised at my easy demeanor and shook my hand. Buster and I have been inseparable since.

Today Buster and I went into town to get sundaes at Dairy Queen. Even though Buster was wearing a cowboy hat, people lost it when they saw him. Even though he tipped his cowboy hat at the people we came upon. Even though Buster and I were holding hands and I was smiling.
