That giant, hairy jerk had taken one look at me and charged. I thought I was a dead man. But he just stuck out his huge tongue and licked my whole face with it.
I had been disgusted of course, seeing as his breath had smelt like a rotting carcass. I hadn’t thought his saliva would be caring the virus that turned Bigfoot into a monster in the first place. It was the perfect perfect defense mechanism.
My Monday was going worse than usual, I thought, as I waited for my bosses reply.
