The hole has finally swallowed the warning sign. Today I looked through it and watched as the void gazed back.
The granddaughter next door has been wailing all night. Hardly got any sleep.
I walked by the hole again today and was pleased to see that they have placed a warning sign next to it. It appears to be stunting the growth of the hole for now.
Today I received this letter from the mayor’s office.
Dear Mr. Greyton,
Thank you for raising awareness about the important issue of public safety. We here at the Appleworth administration share your concerns, but at the same time also must urge you to understand that inter-dimensional anomalies are not part of our immediate budget plan. Thus we can not allocate the required funds to repair it during this fiscal year. We will however put it on top of our agenda for next year and in the meantime we have dispatched a team of experts to prevent further damage to the fabric of time and space. If you have further concerns about this issue, please direct them at the Department of Traffic and Public Infrastructure and they will be happy to be of service.
Thank you for your continued support.
The pastor has been getting odd in his late years. He has started preaching about how the skies will weep the day that the mountains walk.
The kids came by during the night and removed their trash. At least they still got some manners left. Now if only they would stop dragging their feet over the grass, ruining my flowers and leaving claw prints all over the lawn.
Yesterday, local brats dumped carved pumpkins all over my yard. I hope they come remove them themselves before they start to stink or I will have to be the grumpy old man calling their parents again.
