Stingray…ny day!

It’s a rainy day today… I wanted to go outside to take some pictures of mushrooms (again!?) yes, again. What can I do, it’s the perfect season, it’s the perfect place, and I don’t know why but I love that. When I was a kid I was use to cut up in a plant’s journal the picture of mushrooms, and I watched them again and again and again… If you asked me right now to find 3 objects to bring on a desert island, I would say one of my book of mushrooms, my camera and my swiss army knife. I’m addicted to mushrooms and I don’t want to be cured.

So, a rainy day, a sunday, I don’t want to go right now under the rain, I should be angry. I’m not. I’m not because first of all rain equal new mushrooms in a couple of days! (crazy girl) and then, because I’ve made a crazy discover today…

I was supposed to take care of the laundry today, (perfect when the weather is crapy…) so I went to the basement (I live at the 4th floor and in Aarhus the washing machine and the dry machine are shared in the basement, which is I think a very good idea.) So, I went there, I open the door of the washing machine to put some clothes in it and I saw in the dark six big shiny eyes! Damn, what the hell is that!? Should I put my hand in the machine to see what it is? I don’t know, I don’t want  to be bit! But, anyway, I have to do something! Maybe, I can try to ask:

Me: “soooo, hi, who are you?”

The big eyes : “Finally, here you are! We are waiting for you, since yesterday!”

Me: ” Um, ok ok. But um, am I supposed to know you?

The big eyes : “Yes, of course you know us! We were together yesterday on the beach! It’s thank to us that you found many peace of driftwood!”

Indeed, I was yesterday on the beach to find some piece of driftwood. Each time I go there, it’s like I’m in my bubble, I sing always the same song (There, There – Radiohead), I’m drugged by the iodine, the wind, and the world may stop spinning I did not account…

Me:” Can I see you better? Because from here I don’t know who am I talking about”

The big eyes: ” Sure…””Do you recognize us now?”

Look at this… three angry stingrays in the washing machine… Have you ever seen that before? Me neither!

After a while, the stingrays explain me that yesterday, they went back with me on my bicycle, I remember that after the beach, I went to the basement to start a new washing machine, and that I forgot my bag with the wood in the basement. They wanted water so they went inside the machine… I promised to them that the next time I will pay more attention… So if you want to see stingray not angry anymore, you can go here

bye for now and check your washing machine…
