Those who live in geothermally active areas have opportunities for fun not available to those who live elsewhere. One such pleasure, if one can call it that, is to prepare food in volcanic steam vents. Laetitia and her group were hiking among the lava rocks and tree ferns. She brought along a catered picnic lunch that included pupus, which are Hawaiian appetizers.
A fellow named Kent from St. Paul, Minnesota had brought along wieners to cook in a steam vent, but when he found he had forgotten buns and condiments, he went home in disgust. One of the real benefits that Mind’s Eye tour directors have is that they don’t have to keep track of those who join their tours, nor must they file reports if people leave early. Kent’s predicament gave Laetitia the limerick of the day.
When a callow young fellow named Kent
Craved a hot dog cooked in a steam vent
He forgot bread and mustard
Which left him so flustered
That back home to St. Paul he went.
