We are preparing for an uninvited guest today. Earl. He’s supposed to arrive shortly. He seems pushy. And we’ve been told to expect that he won’t pick up after himself. We’ve got board games planned, as it seems he only likes old-fashioned entertainment – like Scrabble, drinkin’ and fightin’. We’ve heard that he insists you shut the electricity to your house off completely. But don’t worry. We’ve got a wind up radio for some dancing, and flashlights at the ready (you know, for the disco effect). We’re hoping he won’t completely destroy our garden and trees, but we have some doubts.
So we’re waiting. And if that’s his car I hear up the road… I ain’t lookin’ forward to this visit.
