How to Escape a Beast in the Woods
One wrong turn in the Dark and Spooky Forest, and I’m fleeing from a hungry, slavering beast. I’m glad I wore my running shoes.
My race leads to Sales Fork in the Road and I make a quick decision. With a car salesman on the west path and a perfume girl waiting east, I go east.
I duck the spray and shout as I race past, “He wants a sniff.” I look behind me at the sound of the belch.
I guess the old joke was right. All I had to do to escape was outrun the perfume sales girl.
You are in the forest and the path diverges. You are being chased by a Forest Beast who WILL eat you, no exceptions, with a *belch* afterward.
You MUST choose between the east path, down which lurks a relentless perfume salesgirl, and the west path, where you will face a desperate car salesman.
Which direction do you go? Tell me all about it (in no more than 100 words, of course).
