Occupational Hazards

I #jump on the #late #ferry and see a #new ferryman. “Where’s Mort?” I ask. “Fell overboard and his #essence dissolved,” says the #bony figure without a trace of #compassion. The commute to the underworld is like that sometimes, I think, squinting against the #salt spray.

Don’t Take Your Onion Farmers For Granted

“Welcome to the Obscure History #Club meeting. Today Margo presents on the #Onion #Insurrection of 1526.” “Thank you, Pete. This is a real-life #fable of underseasoned stew, #defiant farmers, and #optimistic palace cooking staff unfamiliar with how to identify poisonous roots.”

Inheritance

As the #vultures circled the #gallimaufry of Aunt Meg’s estate, Liz found the loose #fireplace brick Aunt Meg had promised would bring an #epiphany. What was wrapped in this #new #babushka, in a dark corner among the #splendour? A brass key and a book: Meg’s Potions and Spells.
