"Yesterday, I slipped up and almost came out to say hello, but I thought better of it. I was too close and you could smell my cologne. I was close enough to hear you ask your friend if she smelled cologne, and I watched you stop and smell the air. You reminded me of a tiny fox the way you lifted your face and scented the air. I know that your dog saw me because the hair on its backs stood up. I watched you grab your dog before he could bolt into the woods, thankfully for me as it is a very big dog."
