Buckhorn Cholla
Back to getting water. What about the cholla? The red and white cow was eating the fruit of the buckhorn cholla. If a cow could eat it, she could eat it. If it didn't kill the cow, why should it kill her? Truth was, she'd eat the iridescent beetle calmly crossing the road if she thought there was a chance it had water inside it.
Right there she knew how thirsty she was. Any other time she wouldn't touch something in her own refrigerator if it was more than two days old. Or offered by someone she didn't know. Or looked funny. Or smelled funny. Face it, Moll—as Peter always says—you're a world class weenie.
The fruit came off the cholla cactus with ease. No problem there, except for the thousand and one sneaky spines so tiny they were all but invisible. In seconds, they were all over her hands, between every finger. Maddening. Especially her left hand which was not doing so well in the sun. But who had gloves? And who'd try and slip a glove over an abraded non-disinfected hand?
— Walks Away Woman, Ki Longfellow, page 26
