Uh Oh…looks like we’re treading into dangerous waters again..Pearl the human is bored. That’s usually when she gets herself and everyone around her into some sort of awkward situation. I’m almost afraid to go on. I said almost.
“Grace, you know how bored I’ve been. Life has no meaning. I need a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Something that makes me feel like I’m contributing to society.”
“Well Pearl, we’ve done five or six different things to give you a reason to get up in the morning and feel like you’re contributing to society. We almost got run out of town with that last one. My ‘Dear Grace’ advice column struck a few people too close to home and your Elixerfixer sold a little too well, and boy did they get mad when we ran out.
“I know, I know, Grace, but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I’m pretty sure I’ve hit on something this town needs…a bingo hall! Just the thought of having our own bingo business makes my old juices flow. What do ya think, Grace?”
“I can’t imagine imagine anything more exciting than seeing the look of joy on someone’s face when they hear, ’15 under I…I-15,’ and they realize they have a row with those little dabbers on every number and they can holler, BINGO! ”
“They’re called dobbers, Grace, not dabbers. Okay then, do you have any ideas as to where we can rent a building big enough to be a bingo hall?”
“Hmmm. I know! What about that old barn on the edge of town? The only thing is, it might not have a bathroom.”
“let’s fire up the Jeep and go check it out, Grace.”
“Can you believe our luck, Grace? That old barn even has a little kitchen and a bathroom in it. All we need to do is sweep out a little hay and we’re good to go. I might even conjure up a refreshment that has a little Elixerfixer in it. We’ll have to think of another name.”
“I can’t wait to get it opened, Grace. Do you think Hsomething and Essie will help us?”
The new Essie/Ellie
