I shouldn't be this lucky

This morning I woke up early. I have no idea why, but the first thing that crossed my mind was that I could go walk the ditch before work. After all, my wife told me that it had rained steadily all day yesterday. I quickly prepared to go, and within 20 minutes of waking up, I was in the ditch. The first thing I noticed was that there was scum all over the bottom. Had there been any substantial rainfall, this place would have been relatively scumless. Rather than waste time, I decided to go to the field (not the pond edge). Total bust. I found a few fragments, but nothing actually worth getting out of bed. I did get a nice workout, though, with all the mud I carried around on my boots while I walked. Then I went to work. Enough detail there. Lunch time came around, and I headed off for the pond again. There were still teeth everywhere! I can't believe the scavengers didn't come over here yesterday after I left. I'm glad they didn't, though. LOOK AT THE HAUL! A complete megalodon, 2 flawless angustidens, a bunch of near perfect angys, and loads of puny teeth. This is without a doubt the most teeth I ever found in an hour. And I still didn't finish walking the pond. Should I go back tomorrow? I just might :-)
