The Jersey Devil
N.D. is my best friends’ father. He grew up in New Jersey under some challenging circumstances. He was not given anything and had to work for everything that he had. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 and has worked his way up from the role of a humble construction worker to the owner of a construction company. He is a very successful contractor and enjoys an adventurous life full of skiing, hiking, and traveling with his three sons and wife.
“Honestly I don’t buy this at all… But when you mention the word ‘Folklore,’ this is what first pops into my mind. The ‘Jersey Devil’ is supposedly some… weird, goat like, winged, devil creature that’s supposed to be flying around the greater New Jersey area. I’ve never seen it, and I don’t really know anyone that claims they’ve seen it… but it’s supposed to be famous. It honestly doesn’t scare me much… a flying goat? Sounds goofier than scarier to me. A lot of people are freaked out by it, though. Some claim they’ve seen it, but no way it exists. I’ll believe it when Big Foot reveals himself…”
I actually heard about the New Jersey Devil on Facebook when it was trending news. It was trending because there is a supposed picture of the creature that someone posted. The photo is clearly doctored, but it was powerful, as it sparked intense conversation and debate about the mythical creature. Many people of New Jersey are very passionate and intense about the monster… It’s like the Loch Ness monster phenomenon.
