I once Rode A Camel

My first and only camel ride was on this docile beast who wasn't docile at all.

The ride itself was not so bad though a little wiggly at the top. It was the getting up and down that was awkward  but I managed that OK too.

It was the getting off that put me off camels. As I dismounted the beast tried to bite me and when it could not it spit on me. I thought it must have been chewing tobacco for that spit was oh so awful. I had to toss out my shirt as the stain never came out.

After that I passed up every chance to ride another camel.
