It’s reunion time in Murdo. Well, not exactly. It’s not until July of 2021, but it’s never too soon to start making plans to attend. The All School Reunion never fails to be a really fun way to spend the weekend every five years. Just ask the person who has hit town a year early. (She has no life.)
Wo(man) on the street…
Call the sheriff. Yram Sicnarf is back in town. She’s the crack-up reporter from Gun Barrel City, TX where they shoot strait. She’s been here before… several times, but the stories that she has five restraining orders against her are blatantly false. She only has four and three have been dropped.
Today she has snagged an interview that is sure to be of interest to the Murdoites. Let’s see how it plays out.
Yram: Excuse me, Mam. Are you Eirelav Yekcel? If you aren’t, you’re a dead ringer for her. Except I think her crown is smaller. So are you or aren’t you?
Lav: Everyone calls me Lav for short. You know I’m me, Yram. You’re my Cuz. We hang out together all the time.
Yram: Okay, okay, Lav for short. I told the local editor I had snagged a story for tomorrow’s paper. You’re my story. I’m going to write about your fraudulence. This town is going to finally know the truth about you. Would you mind answering a few questions? You can lie if you want to. My mom always said if you’re going to tell a story, you might as well make it interesting.
Lav: We shall see what we shall see … Shoot straight.
Yram: Is it true that you graduated from a high school in 1967?
Yram: What was your class motto?
Lav: Uh, wait. It’s right on the tip of my tongue.
Yram: Close enough. Next question…Who took you to the senior prom.
Lav: My parents
Yram: That makes me sad, Lav, but it will look good in print.
Yram: This is the final question. Are you ready?
Lav: Ready for what? Are you really going to out my fraudulence?
Yram: Not yet. I always keep an arrow in my quiver. Are you ready for a rhubarb milkshake at the drive- in?
Lav: Do you have any money or friends with money?
Yram: We shall see what we shall see…Have you snagged a room yet?
Lav: None of the relatives will let us stay for free during the summer.
Yram: Rats! I’ve got to write up this exclusive and get it into the paper.
Lav: What are we going to do for a whole year, Yram? The reunion isn’t until July of 2021.
Yram: We’ll clean motel rooms. What else? I’ll interview people on the side and you can go around and let folks take their picture with you. After my interview hits the paper, you’ll be as famous as Uncle Jeff’s Jeep.
