First the man bit an English muffin.
Then the girl said how nice it would be if we all had a custom wall-mirror.
Then there was fog
and a shot
and a lot of people running into the picture and out again
and someone was dead
and no one knew who did it,
but everyone thought it was the man with the motive.
Except us.
But we didn’t count.
We were out of the picture.
And it didn’t matter anyway
because a big strawberry shortcake showed up next
and I went to the bathroom.

  1. Well, I went to the bathroom and never came back.
    but only once.
