I spent years searching for a six-footed camel. I’d never seen it, but I knew it existed, ‘Cause I’d seen its footprints in the sand, but every time I got close, I missed it.

I studied its footprints in the hot, summer sun and everything seemed just fine until I realized four footprints were his and two of them were mine!
