A bear tracking we will go …

"Maybe we can walk with others?" I asked.

"No," I was told, "we will walk alone as a couple."

Gingerly, I followed my confident companion to the trail's entrance, where there was a nice-looking couple studying the map on the board.

Not able to contain myself, I blurted out "Are you going to walk the trail also?"

The nice couple said "Yes" they were thinking of taking a hike.

"Great!" I said, "Would you like to walk with us?"

I glanced at my companion who was leveling a steady gaze in my direction. But, hey, I was here, out of the car, and going on the hike, so a little humoring might be in order.
