Sweat Skull on Concrete

Sweat_SkullAfter completing a grueling workout in the 90° heat (40 minutes of calisthenics followed by a 1 mile jog), I laid down on the concrete to rest and stretch.

When I stood to go, I saw this skull on the cement.  I stared at it.  I was exhausted, fully spent.  I wondered if I was hallucinating.  Then I realized that my t-shirt had a design on the back, and that I had silk-screened a skull and crossbones onto the concrete in my own sweat.

Although there is a perfectly logical explanation for this mundane phenomena, I know that this is magic.  I died just a little that night.  And the next day, when I recovered stronger, I was reborn just a little.
