So the mystery of the creepy thing in the woods has been solved—well, maybe not solved, but investigated at least.
I went to the police department yesterday, and told them what I saw. Thankfully there were two women officers at the front desk, so I didn’t feel awkward. Sometimes men have a way of making light of things women fear. I think its because in some chivalrous way they don’t want us to be scared, but it usually makes us feel silly for having the fear in the first place.
