Full Circle

When I was three, I was driving with my dad to go pick up pizza. I vividly remember this event. I looked out to the right side of the truck above the pines (where incidentally, I happen to be renting a house at right now.) It was dusk. I saw a huge swarm of little black things flying above the pines. I screamed, because I thought they were bats.

“In response to you telling my friend to put coconut oil on her baby’s skin to act as a natural defense against staph infections, I have to ask you; Why do you presume to know more than the doctors?”
