A nice lunch hunt

OK, so today I was driving around looking for new places at lunchtime and I was scoping the area around the porno ditch. From the road, I spied another ditch and I immediately pulled over, donned the boots, and jumped down into the ditch. As I walked along its banks, I became disappointed because there was no layer exposed. I almost gave up when I spotted a little outcrop of rocks starting to show from the bottom of the ditch. The layer started to rise and get thick and I started salivating. By this time, I was down in the ditch closely inspecting the layer. There were teeth everywhere! Then I saw a big blade sticking out. I tried to dig it out, but it crumbled. What a bummer! Sometimes it just happens, though. Anyway, I continued down the ditch and picked up the teeth as I went. I finally reached the end, and to my surprise, it branched out into 2 more ditches. I followed them both, and there were teeth and visable layer in both. Even better, the layer was at water level, so as it rains, more teeth will wash out. On the way back to the truck, I walked the road on top of the ditch. There was layer spread out there, too. I was still pained by the lost meg from before, but I continued to hope that there would be another. Finally, I found it. It was about the same size, but this one didn't break. Nice… I'll try to dig this place on Saturday.
