P.T. Wyant | @PTWyant
Deborah says: fabulous. Brutal and succinct. I love the role reversal from the usual hero of the dragon vs. slayer story.
Deborah says: I loved this. Very lyrical!

Marriage takes sacrifice, patience and really sharp reflexes.
A second honeymoon found us in Wales. We sought something different, a dash of adventure mixed with...clammy. We got more than the brochure boasted.
At a stop somewhere unpronounceable, during a moonlit stroll, one thing led to another and we separated after the fog thickened to pudding consistency. She got nipped by a swarthy wolf, I was punctured by a biped mosquito with severe dental issues.
Experiencing new cultures can be weird.
Nothing is impossible for a dedicated, albeit unconventional, couple. Sure, we've stalked each other for hours, had heated philosophical arguments and attempted to rip each other's throats out, but nothing worse than my parents threatened during the holidays.
Once home, vacations became problematic. Trips to the beach resulted in my fair skin bursting into flames while the wife chased down and stole everyone's Frisbees.
Cruises were worse when my desired cuisine had buffet-bloated and no longer possessed necks. Meanwhile, my significant other repeatedly polluted the only fauna onboard, a poolside terrarium.
Thankfully, we found a creative way to mix dining and pleasure. Oddly, it took my becoming the undead and her cursed carnivore to embrace...camping.
We once had little use for the outdoors. Things change.
A couple in sleeping bags is like a burrito platter. Bonfire drunks are like hickory-smoked cattle (with udders). Large trailers are remarkably soundproof.
So if you see a handsome couple with shining eyes at your favorite campsite, feel free to stop by for a bite.
