Aw, man, it’s good to be back
and forgetting there’s a queue. Don’t forget to scroll down to see yesterday’s post, where I finally caught up with our college-obsessed sleuth!
Slylock Fox – June 18th, 2013
It started off as an attempt on Mr. Jones’ life. Sick of delivering paper after paper to this blowhard, Davey struck him clear in the noggin with a newspaper. Of course it didn’t work. But Davey practiced, each morning delivering a clean whack to Jones’ head. But as he improved, so did his adversary; not content to just close the door, Mr. Jones trained his arm to rise at the very sound of Davey’s footsteps. Out of defiance, Davey never quit. His little act of hatred became something more. A staple. A tradition. And eventually, the basis for a beautiful friendship.
He probably shouldn’t mention that it was a murder thing, ’cause that might put a damper on it.
