The Tangled Web of Bigfeet

Does anyone ever wake up in the morning, rub the sleep from their eyes, stretch and think… “I bet I’ll see Bigfoot today”? I’ve got 5-bucks on probably not. But that’s the funny thing about life. It is seemingly random.

I say seemingly because even as I type this I fall back in to the pattern of thinking that maybe things aren’t really random at all. Maybe we draw them to us, like big cosmic magnets. For example, you put the thought of the banana car on the back burner of your mind and just let it simmer. Next thing you know – there it is in all its peelin’ out glory.

Bigfoot’s feet… are big! And well maintained.

Was it a random, chance meeting that put you and a 15-foot banana in the same place at the same time? Or did the universe keep rolling its dice until you came together somehow? Did you cast your banana-wantin’ line out in to the water and troll for it? Here, banana-nana-nana.

Maybe the universe is a big, glorious web and each step we take vibrates along a thread sending out messages to whoever is listening. Once there is a connection, do you become part of a circuit that passes that particular current through it all the time? Like, you see one Bigfoot and now you’re… an official Bigfoot seer, bumping in to him all the time?

On Sunday night after my most recent Bigfoot sighting in Milford, Pa. I thought I would share the good news with my husband, Kenny. As we tucked in to bed, the blue glow of the tv flickered in our bedroom.

“Guess what? I saw Bigfoot today.”


“Why don’t you support me?”

“It’s hard to get excited after like the 10th one. You’ve seen a lot of Bigfeet. Bigfeet? Bigfoots?”


In the last month, I’ve come across two Bigfoot statues “in the wild.” I wasn’t looking for them or anything, they were just random sightings.

What if they were looking for me? I’d be pretty honored if my picture was up at the Bigfoot Lodge and they all sat around, sipping macchiatos discussing whether I was real.

“I saw her once in the freezer aisle at the Stop and Shop…” 

“Ahhhhh, baloney! You’re full of it, Bob. Everyone knows she hates going to the grocery store. But this one time, I did see her pumping gas at the station by McDonald’s.” 

“You guys are bunch of idiots. Everyone knows she’s not real!”

    “Believe.” That word totally sums it up.
    Most people do just the opposite, they have to see something before they believe it. But I think it’s the other way around, you have to believe in it before the universe delivers.

      I’ve been thinking about this –

      i think i go both ways on this but i’m not sure what the determining factor is. There must be some “proof” that I need to be able to believe but that “proof” may not even be something tangible. In some ways, it may seem like it is totally ridiculous for me to believe in things like people being connected via some unseen threads but I do. I can’t prove it. There is no quantifiable proof. But i believe.

      And other things I have to have concrete proof to believe, like – i don’t believe in aliens.

      Why? I have no idea.

        Do you believe in Bigfoot? 😉
        If you believe in aliens you’ll start seeing them too.

        • Fuzzygalore says:

          I actually DONT believe in Bigfoot. Chloe always says – if Bigfoot is real, how come they never found a skeleton or anything? Thats the kind of proof i guess i need to NOT believe 🙂

          Ugh, my science-fictioned version of aliens is always that they’re hostile. i DONT want to see them!

    I believe in fate as weird as it can be. Apparently giraffes are now in my cards, or would that be my skein?

    • Fuzzygalore says:


      Sometimes don’t you wonder if they’ve always been around and you just weren’t ready to notice them yet? Kind of like when you get a new car and see tons of the same one of the road that you never picked up on before.

        LOL, yes! In a recent post on my blog, I saw a giraffe I hadn’t noticed before. And it’s quite conspicuous, too.

        I hope it doesn’t become a regular thing.
