My act is officially on the road

Levity, in the face of tragedy. (I started this site two days before 9/11.)

Every day on the way to camp we pass a cemetery near my house. I love it and I wish I lived closer to it. I grew up two doors down from my village’s graveyard, and I spent MAD time there from the time I was 9 until I was 16 and moved into the city. Granted, there was not much of anywhere else to spend time. It was basically Strong Badia (Population: Tire), except it had convenience mart, weird stump, and bar. And that cemetery.

Anyway, back to driving.

Strudel: Mom, is that cemetery popular?

OMG was this happening again??

Me: *beat* Yes. People are DYING to get in!!

Strudel: Ha ha. *Seriousening* Mom, I’m serious. Are a lot of people buried there?

Me: Yes, it’s been around a long time. Want to go for a walk in it sometime?

Strudel: Okay, but not at night.

    SJ – the link doesn’t seem to work, it goes to an admin page. I tried hand-entering post 313 and it was a PWN’d comic but none of the pictures opened. Am I broken? Or are your links?

    Hi Anne,

    Thanks. I had a server migration really recently and there still seem to be a few kinks.

    Instant update: Okay, I looked. I have no idea how I got THAT link. I’m pretty sure I tested it before posting too. How odd. Fixed now! Thanks again.

    Dunno if it makes you feel better, but my students give me openings like that and it’s total crickets in the crowd as I chortle to myself. Yes, I’m the crazy old lady to the 18-22 crowd. Strudel at least *knows* there’s a joke there, even if she has zero patience for it.
