Morning Bob, how’s that woman coming along? You read her the Riot Act like I told you?
Yeap and she didn’t like it one bit. Took the kids and went to her mother’s.
She’s an ornery one, that Regina.
That woman wasn’t just the orneriest thing out there in the swamp. There was that ghost goiter, Sangerria.
--like a real ghost?
Yes like a real ghost, now shut up, you’re breakin’ the ambulance.
Don’t you mean ambivalence?
Whatever. Me and Johnny grabbed our bibles and rifles and took on off out there in Jim’s old T so we could get a good look at the Devil.
You can’t see the Devil, Bob.
I know that but that goiter had to be the next best thing. Pale as a corpse with yellow eyes. It snapped and hissed at the both of us but we held fast. See, there was a screwdriver buried deep in its side. It was in a heap of pain and probably dying.
So what’d you do? Pull it out and make friends?
