Boxes

Pinky has more boxes than anyone I know.
They are not organized. I mention that because one would think that if someone went to the trouble of putting so many things in so many boxes that they would be.
But they’re not.
The boxes are all over the place.
Some are quite old.
Some have utility bills in them from another time and place.
Some have keepsakes.
You never know what’s in them until you open them.
Pinky is working on her boxes now as she realizes that there are too many of them
and that some of them are going bad like old fridge fruit.
She sits in the garage at night with the light on and goes through them.
I think it is a rather tender sight.
Now I feel emotional over all her boxes.

John Puterhead Answers a Question About the Militia

He said ‘hi’.
I said ‘hi’.
He introduced himself as John Puterhead.
I asked him if he knew about the Linkyshire Militia since it was on my mind.
He looked at me a little puzzled and then quickly asked me,
You mean ‘The Militia? The video game?
A video game?
Yeah, it was popular a few years ago. It’s old hat now.
Oh, I said. Can you find out if Mayor Armapple plays that game?
Sure, he said. He looked at his phone and pressed it a few times.
He’s a member of the Linky Militia, ranked 10th.
Thanks, I said. (I didn’t care about the ranking).
