Speed & Demons
May 2nd, 2008 by suzy in Florida,Henry Comments Off on Speed & Demons

I went outside this morning to leave offerings for Grey Cat, and was astonished to see a hearse speeding down my street, its tires squealing as it went around the corner.

You may be wondering why it took me so long to get to Florida. Traumatized by recent airport experiences, it seemed like a good idea at the time to drive down, since I was on the east coast anyway. Big, as the Governator would say, mistake. I hadn’t taken into account the incredible boredom, lack […]
