You never know when the opportunity may arise to capture a moment of intense drama. I found myself in the parking lot of my local Speedway, where I had just procured a healthy snack. When approaching my vehicle I noticed this imposing neon green creature. Thankfully I, like most people over the age of four on our fine planet, now have a fairly high quality digital camera on my person at all times. Were I NOT to have the ability to film this event, who would have believed me?

You’ve undoubtedly viewed this gripping short film multiple times by this point. Let me put your mind at ease. The risk of severe bodily harm to my person was kept to a minimum, thanks to the fact I happened to be wearing a shirt made with material bearing the pattern of a brick wall, which PERFECTLY matched the exterior wall of Speedway. Yes, it's an attractive shirt, brings out the color of my eyes, doesn’t make me look fat, and is NOT available in stores. More importantly, in this instance, it may have been a lifesaver. I was able to stand motionless against the gas station wall so as not to be seen by the massive creature.

I also want to assure you that at no time was any animal mistreated or injured in the making of this film. More importantly, the green beast was unable to obtain the 20 oz. bottle of heaven's sweetest nectar nestled in the cup holder of my automobile.

Needless to say, I’m grateful for my iphone, my local Speedway and my brick patterned shirt.

Be safe, people.
