I’ve been negligent about gathering food.
I mean, I’ve got more carrots than I know what to do with, but carrots aren’t exactly enough to carry someone.
And I’ve got more potatoes than one can imagine, but roasted carrots and potatoes will only go so far.
One needs meat.
Usually I kill an animal, dry its meat, and live off that for a while, so that I don’t have to do it very often.
But I got caught up in working on my map and lost track of time.. and I haven’t killed anything in a while – not the duckens, not the cows. And now I’m out of meat. (I mean, yes, I still have duckens and cows but I woke up hungry. Not peckish. Hungry. That kind hungry that stops a person from thinking straight.)
Luckily, I can still fish. The fish here bite like nothing I ever saw on any other planet I’ve visited. “Have the fire hot before you throw the line in the water” fast. So I fished, roasted a fish, ate that, and then fished some more. Spent the whole day out on the water, in the sun, listening to the duckens cluck and the underground zombies groan. It was peaceful.
I think I’ll do it again tomorrow.
