Of Pears and BearsMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after pears because you'll only end up with a bear in your hair." I never quite understood his advice until one Don't be a Dick Day, I was gardening with my best friend Claire. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was fair and spooky sounds came from deep within. Claire saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!
